The National Housing Federation & Neighbourhoods Green and Keep Britain Tidy recently launched the Green Flag Award for Housing. Following two years of development, the award is now open to housing associations.

Green Flag Award is the benchmark national standard for parks and green spaces in the United Kingdom and an internationally recognised accreditation. The development of the award for the sector not only shows housing association’s leading role in creating great places to live but provides a target to aim for in estate level regeneration and creates a great opportunity to publicise the work already taking place.

Specific sites or estates operated by social landlords will be able to apply for the award, which is not yet applicable to other tenures of housing.
