CABE calls for action on urban green spaces and has investigated the relationship between urban green space, inequality, ethnicity, health and wellbeing in the largest study of its kind in England. Community green: using local spaces to tackle inequality and improve health examines the impact of the quality of local green spaces on the health and wellbeing of people in six deprived and ethnically diverse areas. It shows that providing good quality local green space is an effective way to tackle inequality. It will be of interest to policymakers and those working in local government, social housing and the voluntary and community sector.
