Sheffield City Council will receive over £850 million in core spending power over the next two years (2018-19 & 2019-20). However, it is up to individual local authorities who are independent of central government to manage their budgets in line with local priorities.

The Parks Action Group, which was created following the Select Committee response to the Inquiry on the future of public parks, is reviewing a range of issues relating to parks and green spaces in England – including developing a priority work stream on assessing the evidence related to the existing standards and quality of parks and green spaces. The Government will report back to Parliament in the Autumn.
