ANOTHER Solihull landmark will be flying the flag after receiving a national award.

For the 15th year running, a Bentley Heath Recreation Ground has been recognised as one of the best quality green spaces in the country, taking the total number of green flags in the borough to 15.

Environment spokesman Coun Robert Hulland said: “I am delighted that Bentley Heath Recreation Ground has been honoured with its own Green Flag.

“Our staff work incredibly hard to make Solihull’s parks and open spaces welcoming, safe and well-maintained for residents, and being recognised on an international level is a great achievement and one we are extremely proud of.

Green Flag Awards can be presented to any public green space including parks, cemeteries, universities and community gardens. They are judged against criteria including horticultural standards, sustainability, cleanliness and community involvement.

Other spaces flying the Green Flag in Solihull include Babbs Mills Local Nature Reserve, Dorridge Park, Elmdon Park and Local Nature Reserve, Knowle Park, Woodlands Cemetery and many others.

Scheme manager Paul Todd said the success of the scheme demonstrated how much parks mattered to people.
