Green Infrastructure Strategy

Green space is an integral element of the infrastructure which supports people's quality of life.

The purpose of the Green Infrastructure (GI) Strategy is to set out an approach to maintain existing GI and to enhance it.  It seeks to provide a framework for bringing together the work of a number of organisations who have an interest in and responsibilities for GI. The document also provides supporting evidence to the Revised Local Plan.

Following six weeks consultation from 24th January - 7th March 2014 the cabinet on the 16th July 2014 approved the Green infrastructure strategy.
