Parks and open spaces strategy

Parks and open spaces strategy for 2020.

The parks and open spaces strategy is a tool to identify, communicate, map out and monitor a course of actions to help us achieve our vision.

Our parks and open spaces provide an essential environment and help protect us from the effects of climate change.

Integrated weed management policy (IWMP)

The London Borough of Lewisham and Glendale Grounds Management are committed to minimising the use of chemical herbicides to manage weeds. This policy summarises how we will do this through an integrated Weed Management (IWM) approach and shows the alternative methods we will use. Our goal is to only use chemical herbicides as a last resort and only when there are no other cost-effective or reasonable alternatives so that the risk of bad impacts on public health, the natural environment are kept to the absolute minimum.
