Southampton National Parks City bid 2025

Courtesy of Southampton City Council ‘City News’:

The Southampton National Park City group, a grassroots community initiative are working on a bid to secure Southampton’s place as a green city.

The aim is for Southampton to achieve National Park City status by 2025 by demonstrating, a commitment to protect and enhance its natural, living landscape. This would place Southampton firmly on the green map alongside London that became the first National Parks City in the world.

A National Park City is different to a National Park. National Parks are mostly in rural areas afforded special protection, whereas National Park Cities recognise urban life and development, habitats, people and cultures. To achieve National Park City status, Southampton will need the commitment of residents, visitors and key decision makers alike, to allow nature to work, for the benefit of a better quality of life for all.

The city’s aim to achieve National Park City status by 2025 supports our UK City of Culture 2025 bid. The UK City of Culture bid will focus on providing an exciting cultural programme that will bring people and their natural environment together as part of their cultural experience and wellbeing.
