Green Network Consultation22/09/15
Councillors will be asked to approve new planning guidance for green infrastructure in Dundee on Monday (September 28).
The City Development committee will hear plans for a six week consultation period which could lead to the creation of ‘The Dundee Green Network.’
This follows a collaborative project between City Development, the Environment Department and Scottish Natural Heritage to identify the existing key networks of green infrastructure in the city and opportunities to enhance them.
The planning guidance identifies opportunities to enhance the connection of woodland, open spaces, watercourses, green and active travel routes into a multi-functional green network. This will help to further improve the quality of life within an area and create sustainable communities.
City Development convener Councillor Will Dawson said: “The implementation of the Dundee Green Network planning guidance is an important tool.
“It will help enable the Council to continue to work in partnership with key agencies, developers and communities to connect to existing green networks and implement new green infrastructure in the city
“I would encourage as many people as possible to get behind this, and take part in the consultation.”
