Greener places

Green Infrastructure Strategy

We are working with our partners, communities, and residents on a strategy for greener places in South Gloucestershire.

The aim of this new strategy is to strengthen the way we work together towards a shared vision for ‘greener places where people and nature thrive’.

About the strategy

The strategy explains why we need to improve the network of green spaces and water courses (green infrastructure) across our area, and the action we plan to take.

It shows how we will link our work to regional, national, and global commitments to protect the environment and how important that is.

We call this the ‘green thread’.

What it means

By putting this strategy into action, we aim to achieve:

  • protected and restored nature
  • greater resilience to the changing climate
  • sustainable water management
  • improved health and wellbeing for all
  • sustainable places
  • valued healthy landscapes
  • sustainable and local food production
  • a green and resilient economy
  • stronger working together

This will help us to do what we promise in the:

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
