The 10 green infrastrcuture (GI) health check questions ask councils to assess the priority given to green spaces and the staff and resources to manage them.
Local authorities will receive feedback that rates their performance, helping them identify where they need to make improvements, as well as inviting them to participate in CABE's GI pilots, to be launched later this year.
CABE Space director Sarah Gaventa said: "The GI healthcheck is an easy way for local authorities to identify how seriously they take their green spaces. The CABE website has useful tips to help councils make the shift from grey to green if their healthcheck score reveals they need support."
Three local authorities will be involved in a pilot scheme that CABE will launch in March, explained campaigns adviser Angela Magny.
The idea is that the pilot authorities will work towards meeting the targets laid out in CABE's Grey to Green campaign, which calls for a shift in investment from grey to green infrastructure, and then share information about how they did it.
