Key Information

Business Park .fw

Green Infrastructure (GI) is a network of multifunctional green spaces, natural features and environmental management systems which help to provide a natural life support system for people and wildlife.

GI provides the spatial framework for a range of natural functions and uses. By adopting the GI approach, development schemes in the County Borough of Bridgend may be adapted or designed to provide a range of important benefits to people such as:

  • improved connectivity through footpaths and cycle routes
  • space for nature that contributes to the local or sub-regional pattern of connected habitat
  • imaginative recreational facilities that give educational and physical health benefits to local people
  • places that will be more resilient to the impacts of a changing climate.
