Save Our Green Spaces : East Devon Alliance represented at first national network conference today.

1 Dec
The Save Our Green Spaces National Network was launched just outside Bristol today, Sunday 1st  December 2013, at a  first Free National Conference bringing together groups from across the UK. 
 
The network aims to bring together groups and campaigns from around the country which are trying to protect green spaces for future generations.
Background  
In 2008, with the reality of the RSS (Regional Spatial Strategies) looming, South West SOGS was formed bringing together a number of communities each campaigning to protect green spaces in their respective neighbourhoods.  Together it helped galvanise support across the South West of England and generated over 35,000 objections to the RSS.  Now it wants to create  a nationwide voice.  
 
SOGS is a non membership organisation, which aims to unite campaign groups around the country by providing enquirers and browsers with access to each others’ web site and campaign information.  It will be a source of information about national planning news and events.  It aims to be a first port of call for any future group who need help and advice about setting up their own campaign and will provide information about other groups in their area who are campaigning.   
 
A report from the East Devon Alliance representatives who attended today’s launch , will follow shortly on SIN.  (More info meanwhile  at http://www.saveourgreenspaces.org/ )
