What is a green space agreement?


 Based on the Urban Green Space Law, citizens (land owners, etc.) set an area by agreement of all the concerned parties in order to make each other's town a good environment, and agreements on green space conservation or greening And apply for approval to Yokohama City.

●Laws and regulations
Articles 45 to 54 of the Urban Green Space Law (Agreement)

・One-person agreement: If there is only one landowner
In general, it is determined by a business operator after receiving approval from The Mayor of Yokohama before sale due to development, and will take effect if there are multiple landowners due to sale etc. within 3 years.
・All-agreement: If there are two or more landowners
Generally, an agreement concluded by the agreement of all landowners and others in the urban area where the community has already been formed.

●The merit of concluding a green space agreement
1. Because greening is carried out in a certain area as a whole, planned greening is planned and the level of the local environment and landscape is improved.
2. Since the Steering Committee of the agreement is created and everyone performs greening activities and management work, communication of residents will increase.
3. The green space agreement is approved by the city based on the law, so it can be maintained for a long time. In addition, a signboard will be installed to clarify the agreement area.
