I am glad to report that I have joined Buckhurst Hill Parish Council Open Spaces Working Group. This group is concerned with the protection and preservation of the natural environment in Buckhurst Hill - something we in the Green Party are concerned with. The green spaces of Buckhurst Hill are like the lungs in our urban environment. In this age of the Big Society it is good that this group is wider than just parish councillors and includes the community beyond, as this is an issue many consider to be of vital importance.
I will fight to make sure that as many of the areas owned by the council are kept for the community as possible, so they will be unable to be sold off at some later date. I will also see what can be done to support biodiversity in these areas.
