Green Infrastructure Strategy

We are creating a plan for our green spaces through what is known as a Green Infrastructure (GI) Strategy. This will set guidelines for how we will manage, protect, fund and develop these spaces over the next 25 years.

We are currently working with Chris Blandford Associates to develop our GI Strategy that will guide the strategic direction for our parks and open spaces and inform the Local Plan. This has involved undertaking quality site audits of our 300 (approximately) parks and open spaces. We aim to have a first draft strategy available in Summer 2021.

We have also appointed a GIS Officer to consolidate all our mapping data across the three towns.
