Natural England’s Green Infrastructure Guidance (NE176)

Thumbnail image of publication cover.

Natural England’s Green Infrastructure Guidance articulates our position in relation to green infrastructure planning and delivery, which is increasingly recognised as an essential part of sustainable spatial planning. This is due in no small part to the role of green infrastructure as a ‘life support system’, able to deliver multiple environmental functions, and to play a key part in adapting to and mitigating climate change.
Please note that this report refers to planning policies that have now been surpassed by the National Planning Policy Framework.
