Consultation on the draft Green Infrastructure Strategy

The Cotswold District Council consultation on the draft 2021 Green Infrastructure Strategy is now open. The consultation period started on Monday 14 June and end on Monday 16th August.
For full details please visit the website https://www.cotswold.gov.uk/greeninfrastructure .

Green infrastructure (GI) plays an essential role in both the natural and built environment by providing habitats for wildlife to flourish, places for recreational activity to take place and underpins a vibrant economy through the creation of desirable areas where people want to work, live and visit.

Covering a wide variety of open spaces and green features, GI typically includes parks, playing fields, woodland, allotments and private gardens but can include sustainable drainage features – used to alleviate flooding and water pollution – urban planting, cycle tracks and Public Rights of Way as well as ‘blue’ features such as streams and other waterways.

The Strategy is aimed at:

  • The general public/community groups.
  • Town and parish councils,
  • Statutory decision makers and consultees,
  • land owners/managers,
  • Developers and their agents,
