Help us update the Landscape Institute’s green infrastructure position statement
Building on the success of its two publications on the subject of green infrastructure (GI), the Landscape Institute’s Policy Committee is in the process of developing an updated position statement. The first edition has been cited in various central and local government policy documents. The updated publication will be an important addition to the Landscape Institute’s work on GI and will take into account new evidence in support of investment in green infrastructure, along with policy changes that have been implemented since the original position statement was published.
We are looking for new projects to feature in the updated position statement which will help illustrate the breadth of work undertaken by the landscape profession in the planning, design and management of GI. We want at least one GI strategy and are keen to ensure representation from across the UK.
A working group of Policy Committee members (Annie Coombs FLI, Richard Copas CMLI and Ian Phillips CMLI MRTPI) will be leading the Landscape Institute’s work on the position statement update. As part of this, the working group wishes to include GI projects from across the UK which demonstrate the full range of work undertaken by the landscape profession – from strategic planning through to design and ongoing management.
Material submitted for consideration for inclusion as projects in the position statement should comprise the following information:
– A concise project summary, no longer than 1 x A4 page, which explains how the project plans for, or delivers, multifunctional GI. It would be helpful to include the following in your submission:
Involvement of landscape professionals
Maintenance/management regimes where appropriate
– 2 x images to support the summary. These could be maps, illustrations or photographs. Please note that, if selected, high resolution (300dpi) images will be required with credit details readily available.
Please send your submissions to Stephen Russell at firstname.lastname@example.org by 9am on Thursday 26 July.
