Open Spaces Society: Inclosure Revived

The general secretary of the Open Spaces Society, Kate Ashbrook, has written about the current government's increasingly aggressive attacks on community access and protection of open spaces as amounting to a new inclosure movement (the historical process which saw common lands enclosed and turned into profit-making private farms).

"We now face a revival of the inclosure-movement. The list of the government's anti-green attacks on access and open spaces lengthens by the day." 

In this context, the need to protect open spaces becomes increasingly urgent. Read the full press release here.

For information on how to register a space as green, see the Open Spaces Society information sheet here.
