Green infrastructure strategy

Green spaces in our district 

This consultation is now closed.  Thank you to all of you who took the time to respond to this consultation.  We are now analysing the results.  The strategy looks at how future developments can plan for and utilise green space to provide multi-purpose networks across the district.   The strategy known as a Green Infrastructure Strategy (GI Strategy) will also make use of existing green spaces in the district.  The strategy will provide a framework of standards and recommendations that once coordinated and delivered should lead to a better quality of life for us all.
