Green Flag Awards

North West Leicestershire District Council is proud to have been awarded two Green Flag Awards for Coalville Park and Broomleys Cemetery.

The Green Flag Award Scheme for Parks and Green Spaces was launched in 1996 with the objective of encouraging the provision of good quality public parks and green spaces that are managed in environmentally sustainable ways. The Green Flag Award helps to create public recognition of good quality green spaces and people’s confidence in them. The Award aspires to raise expectations of what a public green space can offer.

Awards are given on an annual basis and winners must apply each year to renew their Green Flag status.
