Position statement – Green infrastructure and the value of connected, multifunctional landscapes

Landscape Institure reports

“The Landscape Institute believes green infrastructure approaches to land use planning must be afforded the same priority as conventional infrastructural components; a priority that it rightly deserves given its critical role in a wide range of challenges including economic competitiveness, climate change adaptation and mitigation, social cohesion, human health and wellbeing and reconnecting society with the natural environment.

Whilst appreciation of the value of natural elements throughout our urban and rural environments is increasing, there still exists a widespread lack of awareness of just how important these assets are. With this in mind, the Landscape Institute made the decision to produce a position statement on the them of green infrastructure and the important role that the landscape architecture profession has to play in its delivery.

Members’ views are vital in finalising the content of the draft document, a copy of which can be found here. We would be grateful to all members who would be willing to review the draft position statement and provide feedback.

Any queries should be directed to Stephen Russell, Policy and Public Affairs Officer, on 020 7299 4509 or at stephenr@landscapeinstitute.org”
