COSLA comment on council parks and greenspaces

A COSLA Spokesperson commented: “Scotland's Councils are committed to Community Wellbeing and making local communities as pleasant as possible.

"COSLA is currently in talks with the Scottish Government regarding the spending review and will be presenting a strong case that Local Government cannot sustain further cuts, as experienced over the last two years, without significant impact on services and jobs, and most importantly the communities we serve to protect.

"COSLA will be making it clear that to achieve the shared objectives of the Scottish Government and Local Government, which are to promote inclusive growth and tackle inequalities, then it is essential the Local Government is treated fairly in this upcoming spending review.”
