Planting Places Community Green Space Awards
SustNav manages 'Planting Places', a unique green space awards which has run in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011.The Awards celebrate top examples of community green spaces - and the hard-working people who care for them - from across the South West of England. They recognise the huge array of benefits that green spaces can and do deliver in supporting healthy, sustainable communities and highlight the potential for an enhanced role for green space in our towns and cities. Planting Places was developed and delivered in partnership with Natural England, with a range of other organisations supporting the project over the years. These have included GreenSpace SW, Natural England, NHS South West, the Environment Agency, Defra, English Heritage, ARUP and the Architecture Centre.
We are currently seeking funding to run an awards in 2013 (please get in touch if you are interested in sponsorship).
