We have developed a Green Infrastructure Strategy to guide the development, management and delivery of green infrastructure across the region. Thinking about environmental resources as ‘green infrastructure’ is a way to recognise that the environment provides essential life-sustaining services, along with tangible economic and social benefits.
Just as we plan our grey infrastructure network (e.g. roads, bridges, water pipes, and sewer systems), we intend to proactively protect, manage and maintain landscapes by recognising that multi-purpose ‘living assets’ are an essential part of land use and infrastructure planning and are critical to the healthy functioning of our urban and rural places.
