The new partnership will see the British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI) support The Parks Alliance in its mission to promote and protect the public parks we are proud to have at the heart of UK life and culture. As we move into 2020, environmental issues, including the future of our parks and green spaces, remain firmly on the political agenda, reflecting their contribution to health and wellbeing, tackling climate change and bringing communities together. Both organisations know further work is needed to ensure investment flows into these important assets at the local level.

BALI is the UK’s leading trade association that represents all landscape professionals, from design, build and maintenance through to supply, training and education with landscape professionals based in all four nations of the UK. BALI aims to maintain and improve the standing of the landscape industry by providing its members with a strong collective voice and raise greater awareness of the landscape industry’s role in the creation of an improved environment.

BALI Chief Executive Wayne Grills said:

We are very happy to support TPA. Our members are hard at work creating, maintaining and improving parks and green spaces every day and realise how important they are to local communities and the wider environment. BALI shares TPA’s mission to promote and protect parks and the importance of continued investment into these vital natural assets. We look forward to working closely with TPA on these issues.

TPA Chair Matthew Bradbury said:

We are very excited to have BALI on board. They have been a strong advocate for TPA over the last few years and share a commitment to our values and mission. As a trade body, they have a very strong commitment to highlighting the industry’s role in protecting and improving the natural environment  – a natural environment that is so important to the wellbeing of people and places across the UK.
