A record number of applications have been received in the UK for the 2019 Green Flag Award. 2023 sites have applied for the prestigious Award, from world famous parks to local community green spaces. Cemeteries, University Campuses, Woodlands and Nature Reserves join the ever growing list of parks and green spaces that aspire to achieve the international standard.
Paul Todd, Green Flag Award Manager said:
"It's testament to the hard work and dedication of the many park managers, staff and volunteers that we have more applications in the UK than ever before. It really goes to show how important quality parks and green spaces are to local communities. Special thanks must also go to the hundreds of volunteer Judges who are currently travelling the country assessing the applications."
This year's UK results will be announced on the 16th July.
