Green Infrastructure Plans and Statements

All developments where existing Green Infrastructure (GI) assets are likely to be significantly affected or there is a significant opportunity to enhance, link or create GI assets.


This will apply to most major built development proposals, some major changes of use and some minor built development proposals. GI Plans and Statements can form part of the Design and Access Statement. The developer should provide the following:

  • A plan showing existing GI assets on and adjacent to the proposed development site and GI constraints and opportunities for the proposed development
  • A statement detailing the way in which GI has been incorporated into the proposed development Masterplan, drawing on the constraints and opportunities information above. The statement should explain how the proposed GI assets in the development Masterplan link to the wider GI network
  • The final development Masterplan showing the proposed GI to be incorporated into the development proposals.
