Telford & Wrekin Council recognises that people value the green spaces we have in the borough, that's why we’re asking you to join in with the 'Big Green Vote'.
As part of the Green Guarantee, council-owned sites will be protected from development, preserving the areas for the future.
We want to work with communities to help enhance sites and if enough people want to improve somewhere, we'll help with up to £1,000 of support.
The place could be a green space you walk in, somewhere the kids (or the dog) like to let off steam or the grassy area on your doorstep. Make sure you let us know by getting involved and voting.

Residents already have great access to a wealth of green spaces - Fields in Trust, Local Nature Reserves, woodlands, playing fields and our award-winning town park plus 104 council-owned areas of green space called Green Guarantee sites.
As part of Telford's 50th birthday celebrations, we will protect another 96 sites, leaving a legacy from the celebrations for future generations. The borough is a mix of urban areas with green “oases” and through the Big Green Vote we want to know which of these new Green Guarantee sites people value the most.
To find which of the 96 new Green Guarantee sites are near you click on the map and select a green zone or enter your post code below. You can then select the sites you value the most and vote for them. You can also learn more about the Green Guarantee and view the locations of the original 104 Green Guarantee sites here.
Once registered you'll have five votes to cast for any listed sites by Sunday 20th May.
The 50 sites receiving the highest number of votes will qualify for £1,000 worth of support, so your vote could make a real difference.
By voting you'll have a direct influence over the top 50 sites and we hope you’ll encourage friends and family to do the same. Remember, all 200 sites under the Green Guarantee will be given protected status.
You'll also be able to opt into a prize draw where you could win prizes including wildflower seeds or a garden wildlife hamper sponsored by CJ WildBird Foods Ltd.
We'd love to hear about what makes your favourite sites so special and see your photographs, so on each site page you can leave comments and add your photos.
You can also enter your pictures into a photography challenge by joining our Telford 50 Facebook group where we’ll be announcing new Green Guarantee themes each week during the Big Green Vote.
