Green Infrastructure planning: A contemporary approach for innovative interventions in urban landscape management

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Green infrastructure has become established as the central approach to landscape planning in the UK, Europe and North America over the past decade. Bringing together a number of disciplines to form a coherent landscape resource based approach to environmental management. By assessing its utility and value this paper addresses the development of this approach in policy, practice and examines its successes and failures. Reviewing alternative approaches that green infrastructure interventions take to meet the challenges of population
growth, transport and recreational needs and supporting economic growth is therefore an important assessment. This is discussed in terms of the direction that current and future green infrastructure planning policy is being presented in. Despite the extensive use of its principles in landscape planning in the UK, Europe and North America additional data is required if it is
to be embedded fully in policy at the appropriate scale.
