Green Infrastructure

‘Green infrastructure’ is a term that’s sometimes used to describe a wide range of natural and semi-natural features, spaces, rivers and lakes including parks, fields, allotments, hedgerows, roadside verges and gardens, not to mention entire ecosystems such as wetlands, waterways and mountain ranges. Regardless of ownership, condition or size, the ‘green infrastructure’ umbrella covers it all.

Combined, these features provide a range of natural functions and uses. For example, by improving our connectivity through footpaths and cycle routes, we can also generate space for nature by linking habitats, establishing recreational facilities (with educational and physical health benefits), and ‘green’ our urban areas making them more resilient to the impact of a changing climate.
