The Canterbury District Green Infrastructure Strategy

This consultation has now closed and the results will be reported to a future committee meeting.

We were seeking people’s views on the Canterbury District Green Infrastructure Strategy 2018-2031.

Green infrastructure is made up of the network of green spaces, rivers and lakes that intersperse and connect villages, towns and cities.

In rural areas this can include fields, woodlands, hedgerows, country parks, rivers and lakes.

In urban areas it can include domestic gardens, street trees, sports pitches, civic spaces, green roofs and walls.

The strategy, which complements our Local Plan and national planning policies, identifies a strategic network of green infrastructure sites along with an assessment of the issues they face and any opportunities, it explores strategic priorities and any future actions we will seek to lead or facilitate.

A separate background evidence and information document informs the strategy.
