"The quality of people's homes is influenced by the spaces around them. There is increasing recognition that well designed, well managed green spaces by and in between housing are crucial to making neighbourhoods livable, and contribute to people's quality of life."
Neighbourhoods Green is a partnership initiative which highlights the importance of open space for residents of social housing and works with social landlords to raise the quality of their design, management and safe use.
The project provides guidance, support and tools for housing associations, local authority housing departments, arms-length management organisations (ALMOs), resident associations, community groups and their partners.
The Greener Neighbourhoods good practice guide is a recently produced action plan which identifies 10 key considerations for improving open space in social housing areas. A copy can be downloaded here.
