Green Infrastructure


The planning and delivery of green infrastructure is increasingly recognised as an essential part of sustainable spatial planning to deliver multiple environmental functions, and to play a key part in the housing and economic growth agenda, adapting to and mitigating climate change. We have laid out our climate change commitments in our Company Information section.

Our Green Infrastructure experience includes identifying and analysing networks of existing and new sites from sub-regional to neighbourhood levels, accommodating both accessible natural green spaces within local communities and larger sites in the urban fringe and countryside.
We also provide evidenced based open space strategies and play strategies set within the context of the NPPF for local authorities in the process of preparing and reviewing Local Plans. We identify and audit existing provision, help set local standards and bench-marking and we work with communities and stakeholders to establish adoptable new standards, policies and strategies.  Our point of difference over recreation planners is that we have a wealth of experience actually delivering meaningful and sustainable open space and play projects across the UK.
