Green Infrastructure Strategy Engagement

Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole (BCP) Council has recently signed up to a set of goals and principles within our Green Infrastructure Strategy that sets our ambitions for investing in green infrastructure across BCP over the next ten years.

The goals of the strategy are to make best use of Green Infrastructure to:

1. Encourage healthy living and well-being 

2. Strengthen resilience to climate change 

3. Support nature recovery and biodiversity 

4. Support economic recovery, prosperity and placemaking 

We’ll deliver this through 4 main principles:

1. Rethinking the future of parks and green spaces - increasing the functionality of spaces as natural health centres and green living rooms, rewilding urban greenspaces and promoting nature-based solutions to help adapt to a changing climate

2. Connecting the Green Net - strengthening nature recovery and green travel networks and creating two new landscape-scale countryside and coastal parks

3. Greening the urban environment - green roofs/walls, greener streets/public realm and celebrating trees, and embedding green infrastructure into new housing and regeneration areas

4. Championing green infrastructure - advocating green infrastructure benefits and changing mindsets for a greener future

You can find more information in the Green Infrastructure Strategy Summary.

Have Your Say

This engagement focuses primarily on the third principle 'greening the urban environment' and is the area where we are asking residents, the public at large, landowners and developers to make a difference to address the Climate and Ecological Emergency.

We know that in some areas there are low levels of accessibility to green space for those who need it most, in other areas there are flooding issues, for others no street trees to help cool their neighbourhoods. We would like your help to understand where a difference can be made and the level of support for more Green Infrastructure.

Please give us your views by completing the online survey. You can also drop pins, add comments and/or post images on our map of green spaces in BCP here.

The deadline for this engagement is Monday 2 January 2023. If you have any questions or need the survey in a different format, please email environment@bcpcouncil.gov.uk or call 01202 123123.
