Income bars access to natural beauty

West Sussex

Families need an annual income of at least £45,000 to be able to enjoy the natural beauty of their environment.

According to a report, less than half of people living in social housing felt they had the same access to beauty in urban or rural areas.

The study, by think tank ResPublica, says this inequality impacts health and the quality of people’s lives.

The authors say the right to beauty should be enshrined in law for “all and not just the privileged”.

A growing body of research in recent years has attempted to quantify the impact of nature and beautiful environments on quality of life.
