About Green Heritage Site Accreditation
Green Heritage Site Accreditation is awarded to green spaces that are managed to Green Flag Award standards and also actively understand, identify, manage and promote the elements of their heritage that make that site unique. A Green Heritage Site must also hold the Green Flag Award (although it is possible to apply for both even in the first year).
Please contact the Green Flag Award team here if you are interested in applying: www.greenflagaward.org/contacts/
