Maintaining essential services to support your health and wellbeing

Green Infrastructure

Green Infrastructure (GI) is a network of multi-functional green space, urban and rural, which is capable of delivering a wide range of environmental quality of life benefits for local communities.

Green Infrastructure Plan 2019

Our Cheshire East Green Infrastructure Plan 2019 is a road map for a comprehensive and connected Green Infrastructure (GI) to meet the needs of people and nature in the 21st century and to pass on a better environment to the next generation.

The plan can be used by Cheshire East Council, its residents, partners, landowners and developers to develop projects that deliver a net gain in Green Infrastructure. The Plan provides an evidence base and framework for like-minded organisations or individuals who share a vision for excellent green infrastructure.

The plan highlights some strategic areas for consideration and suggests some approaches to partnership working and the involvement of communities or landowners. 

Green Infrastructure Framework for North East Wales, Cheshire and Wirral 2010

The Green Infrastructure Framework looks at the planning and coordination of Green Infrastructure across North East Wales, Cheshire and Wirral. It was commissioned by a partnership of local authorities and environmental agencies; and facilitated by the Mersey Dee Alliance.

The framework considers the natural environments of the area and sets out a vision of how a healthy natural environment can help sustain economic growth and thriving communities.  A Green Infrastructure Action Plan for Crewe has also been prepared as part of the Framework.
