James Cross, CEO of Urban Green Newcastle, speaks to Gilly Hope at BBC Radio Newcastle about his open letter to The Rt Hon Boris Johnson MP proposing that significant investment be made in city and town-wide urban green infrastructure.

James Cross talks to Gilly Hope at BBC Radio Newcastle about how Urban Green Newcastle is responding to the increase in visitors to the city’s parks, and how members of the public can support the charity to keep them safe and clean for everyone to enjoy.
