High quality places for people and wildlife


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 supports 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.
