Save Walsall's Green Spaces and Countryside Services

"We the undersigned petition the council to: reconsider the 2013 budget proposals for Walsall Green Spaces and Countryside Services. We are concerned that proposed redundancies will signal the demise of this precious and well loved department, our community green spaces and local nature reserves. All Green Space staff including Countryside Rangers are an asset to the town and borough and are an essential service to the people of Walsall demonstrated by their hard work and commit
ment in caring for and improving our green spaces, promoting environmental issues of local, national and international importance. They share their passion, knowledge and expertise to the people of Walsall in many guises including local residents groups, user groups and friends groups. They are an asset that Walsall cannot afford to lose.

We ask that the Council do not make redundancies and instead look seriously at other routes including maximising income from the resource. We also ask that the council remember that our green spaces are our legacy to the town's young people and of generations yet to come. We are merely guardians of them and as such should not be neglected or destroyed."

"The recently released 2013 budget proposals contain cuts that will mean redundancies within this service that in the course of time will decimate the service that is currently provided. Although certain voluntary community groups do help with provision, they can only function as effective groups with the leadership and support provided by the committed and knowledgeable staff that are currently in post. Without these people, the green spaces of Walsall will suffer through lack of maintenance, vision and management. The green spaces could become places where nobody would want to visit thereby depriving local people of much need leisure and environmental opportunities for relaxation and a healthy living both of mind and body."
