Delivering strategic Green Infrastructure

Our recent work with Highwood Group at North Stoneham Park helps secure it’s future by delivering strategic green infrastructure and restoration of the historic landscape.

We were delighted to present our recent work with Highwood Group at North Stoneham Park in helping secure the future of the historic landscape and delivering strategic green infrastructure and large scale mixed use development, at the Landscape Institute South East Green Infrastructure event on 30th April.

Influence explained how integration of strategic green infrastructure planning, EIA and design has helped guide the best outcomes for the site and the importance of collaboration to deliver multifunctional landscapes that can provide longterm benefits to communities at a number of levels.

The talk was well received and followed by a useful overview of the current European and UK policy context for green infrastructure by the Landscape Institute’s Vice President – Ian Phillips, which included funding mechanisms for delivering GI strategies through Local Enterprise Partnerships throughout the UK.IMG_6729Both Ian and Influence Environmental looked at GI opportunities for landscape architects as well as the need to reinstate the recently withdrawn national Green Infrastructure Guidance and the Landscape Institute’s hand in helping to facilitate this.
