Both national and local policy is rapidly moving towards requiring development to result in a net positive gain for biodiversity, with green infrastructure being an integral element of this. In addition, there is clear and ever-growing evidence that green infrastructure can deliver key benefits for not only biodiversity and the environment but also public health and wellbeing.

In this talk we cover:

  • The current direction of planning policy with regards to ecology, green infrastructure and its link to health and wellbeing,
  • How early identification of the ecological constraints and opportunities can significantly reduce the risk of delays and maximising the opportunities for cost-effective enhancement,
  • Approaches and options for designing green infrastructure into a development, using case studies of approaches taken to date, and
  • Additional environmental and health & wellbeing benefits Green Infrastructure can bring to a development with regards to climate change adaptation.
