Themes: Green infrastructure

This page links to resources that specifically concern green infrastructure planning, policy and practice. However, the term 'Green Infrastructure' cuts across many habitats and themes represented elsewhere on this website. You may also wish to look at, for example, the pages on grassland management, trees, grassland creation/floral enhancement and the pages on Artificial habitats that include information on Greenspaces and churchyards, Green/brown roofs and green walls and more.
