Setting the standard for green infrastructure
People value living in places that are close to nature. As well as allowing wildlife to thrive, green infrastructure – such as parks, ponds or play areas - provides spaces for people to enjoy, and cost-effective ways to manage water naturally and prevent flooding.
Building with Nature has been designed to support the design, implementation and management of green infrastructure. It introduces a framework of principles - Building with Nature Standards - that provide planners and developers with the know-how and good practice guidance to deliver high-quality, liveable, places where people can enjoy healthy, sustainable lifestyles.
