The Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN); the largest greenspace initiative in Europe, wants to celebrate and share learning from the City of Edinburgh Council’s Parks Team after it was voted the top team in the UK.
Keith Geddes, Chair of the Central Scotland Green Network Partnership, said “We have an example of best practice right here on our doorstep and we plan to ensure the knowledge is communicated across central Scotland. Austerity in the public sector economy does not mean we have to lose quality, as this award shows. We intend to do our bit by helping make sure that best practice is communicated and shared.”
The local authority team in Edinburgh, one of the 19 local authorities covered by the CSGN area, was voted the ‘Best Service Team: Parks, Ground and Horticultural Service’ at the Association for Public Sector Excellence Awards last month.
