Being attuned with your green spaces can increase your life

Comment: I have championed the protection of rural England during the pre-election Hustings in April 2005 and during my involvement in the MK2031 Expansion Consultations.
 
Milton Keynes is going to expect about 70,000 new houses by 2034. Besides needing infrastructure for roads, services, water supply and drainage (not to mention schools, extra surgeries) it will need to retain the green spaces that makes it unique and increase some recreational spaces rather than loose them in the building frenzy that is to follow.
 
This is all the more persuasive upon the MKP (Milton Keynes Partnership which includes the Council, The MK PCT and Mk Gen NHS Trust etc) to pressurise the Govt in listening to the future health equalities and needs of the diverse population of MK and to facilitate free access to all green spaces for long leisurely walks coupled with better Older People Services at all levels.
