Solihull Council scoops three regional awards

Solihull Editorial 25th Nov, 2022   0

SOLIHULL Council scored a hat trick at a regional park awards.

The authority scooped three of the 12 awards of offer at the West Midlands National Park Awards (WMNP).

It came out on top in the Public Realm category for the work in the Armed Forces Community Garden, the Planting Our Future category for the aim to plant 250,000 trees in the borough in 10 years and the Conservation of the Historic Environment, Landscape Architecture, Urban Design and Ecology (CLAUDE) for the making space for nature projects.

Councillor Ian Courts, leader of Solihull Council, said: “Over the years our teams have worked hard and shown incredible commitment to pushing forward with a huge range of conservation and environmental projects.

“The three projects and teams that have been given these awards are all success stories for the borough.

“All of these projects not only support local biodiversity and our environment, but also make Solihull a much more pleasant place to live, work in and visit.

“And that’s what these awards are about – the connection between the environmental transformation of the region and the social and economic transformation of the region.”

The WMNP Awards programme, launched in 2021, is designed to celebrate, and share best practice, policy and research and to guide and inspire work that deals with challenges faced by the region.
