North London Green Flag success

The Green Flag Awards scheme has unveiled this year’s winners, with North London as a whole collecting more than either Scotland or Wales.

The awards are the mark of quality green space in the UK. In total, 1,448 parks, cemeteries, universities, shopping centres and community gardens have met the high standards demanded.

North London has a total of 55 awards – more than Scotland or Wales. Haringey’s haul was the fourth largest of any borough in the country.

Cllr Nilgun Canver, Cabinet Member for the Environment at LB Haringey, said: “We’ve remained committed to maintaining excellent standards in parks despite the challenging financial climate.

“These Green Flag awards are a tribute to the commitment of our parks’ staff and partners, as well as the invaluable hard work of our Friends of Parks’ groups who put so much time and effort into them.”

The Green Flag Awards are run by Keep Britain Tidy, under licence from the Department for Communities and Local Government, in partnership with Keep Scotland Beautiful, Keep Wales Tidy and Tidy Northern Ireland, the Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens and the National Housing Federation.
