Residential green space proven to boost community cohesion

Greener Neighbourhoods: A good practice guide to managing green space draws on a literature review undertaken by the University of Sheffield, offers illustrative case studies of ten key principles and provides a practical resource signposting to further information.

The guide aims to inspire and support social landlords and their residents to take more action to plan for and improve their green space assets.

At the launch hosted by the National Housing Federation, Helen Williams, Director of Neighbourhoods, said: ‘Housing associations play an important role in ensuring that good quality open spaces are accessible to all. This publication and the wider work of the Neighbourhoods Green partnership illustrates what can be achieved through effective partnership approaches to managing green space.’
