Our Projects

GI changes under 2050 climate
- 10% vegetation
+ 10% vegetation
+ 20% vegetation
+ 100% vegetation
Land classification
Modelling Scenarios
Results
Aim for 20% increase in GI
Delivering 20% more GI
Not all GI is equal
New Parks are best, but maybe impractical
A combination of parks/street trees/green roofs/ green walls can deliver +20% GI

IGI Analysis
SUDS
"
Quality places work well because the necessary physical
and social infrastructure is planned and provided
as an
integral part
of the overall development programme."
Why 'Integration'?
“The design of external spaces is as important a masterplan consideration as the design of the buildings…
Unfortunately, in some proposals it was evident that the landscape had been dealt with as an afterthought, and that open spaces were residual – the parts left over once road and plot layouts had been determined”

14 regional 'hotspots'
Which would you prefer to live beside?
Policy
SUDS : a primary objective
should mimic natural drainage.
watercourses should stay open
existing culverts should be opened
impermeable surfaces should be minimised
Development plans should:
take the open space strategy into account
set out specific requirements for open space …how much, of what type and quality
Habitat Networks are important:
biodiversity
climate change adaptation.

Developments should:
protect and enhance
prevent fragmentation
restore links
Analysis
Street layouts:
walkable access and shared spaces

Open space and other facilities:
accessible on foot and bicycle

Planners and developers:
identify opportunities to create networks between open spaces
