What is the Green Guarantee?
Telford & Wrekin Council has committed to protecting over 300 green spaces in the borough under its Green Guarantee.
The Green Guarantee protects areas of Council land from any future development, along with Local Nature Reserves and Sites of Special Scientific Interest, Fields in Trust sites and Village Greens which are already protected.
The Green Guarantee was a commitment in the Telford & Wrekin Local Plan.
We want everyone to be safe when visiting our sites that have water features within them.
We work closely with the Royal Life Saving Society on managing water safety on our sites and further details on advice can be found on the RLSS website.
When visiting this site, here are a few tips to keep safe around the water:
- keep out of the water at all times
- never allow children to play near the water unless accompanied by an adult
- don't run near the water, you may trip and fall in
- learn how to help in an emergency; if you see someone in trouble in the water never jump in yourself. Stay calm and phone for help. Some sites across the borough have water safety sites and equipment, please only use the equipment when required.
