Green Flag Parks Up To The Mark

A Green Flag judge visited the Coastal Park and Royal Military Canal recently to make sure that they were still up to the mark when it comes to cleanliness, maintenance, safety and other issues.


The district's two Green Flag award-winning parks have been give the green light after a visit from a 'secret shopper'.

These popular parks got the secret shopper's seal of approval in all 24 test areas - and an overall Green Light showing that they met award criteria with no areas of concern on the day of the visit.

This is a great tribute to our hard-working staff who look after the parks so well.

The mystery shopper noticed no dog fouling in the Coastal Park and a minimal amount in the Green Flag area of the canal.

We would like to say thank you to all the dog owners who do the right thing and respect our parks and open spaces and to remind those who don't clear up after their pets that they face an £80 penalty - or a fine of up to £1,000 if we take them to court.
