I found this yesterday - an online petition to get more fruit and nut trees planted in parks and public spaces. Seems sensible, free fruit with zero air miles, and fruit trees cost the same to maintain as the usual varieties we see in municipal plantings. You need to be a British citizen or resident to sign it.

Duly signed. My only concern is that people will inevitably damage the trees in their efforts to reach the fruit/nuts. Back when we lived in London we had the remnants of an old orchard in our local park and it broke my heart to see whole branches ripped off the fruit trees each year.
