The publication of this document follows a conference in 2004 on the future of Burgess Park, organised by Southwark Council, The Friends of Burgess Park and Groundwork Southwark - partners in the regeneration of the park.

The findings of New Urban Landscapes are being developed through a new European Union funded project, Sustainable and Accessible Urban Landscapes (SAUL), through which Burgess Park will receive funding.
