The Cumbria crew won the best-service-team award for parks, gardens and horticultural services.
Copeland borough council was one of over 20 “best-of” winners for schemes and teams in categories ranging from housing and regeneration to healthy living.
The Service Awards by APSE, the Association for Public Service Excellence, recognise good front-line local-government services.
Four of Copeland’s public areas won flags this year, and it now has more flag awards than any other authority in Cumbria.
Winners included Distington Hall Crematorium, Egremont Castle, St Nicholas’ Gardens and Trinity Gardens.
Copeland also won three Green Heritage awards, which recognise good treatment of historic features and high standards of conservation.
Councillor Hugh Branney, said: “Good public areas help regeneration, give a sense of pride, recognise the importance of historic sites and provide relaxing environments.”
Local Government Minister John Healey said of the APSE awards: “They encourage and reward ambition in local government to deliver the best it can be.”
Other winners included Stockton-on-Tees borough council for streets and public realm. Hull city council won the overall council of the year award for service.
