Buckinghamshire & Milton Keynes Natural Environment Partnership

Green Infrastructure and Health

The NEP Green Infrastructure (GI) Group aims to promote coordinated thinking and action which focusses on the provision of a GI network which maximises multi functioning benefits for healthy people and environment. The group will look to review the Buckinghamshire Green Infrastructure Strategy and encourage the implementation of projects which are in line with the Delivery Plan. A key challenge is the incorporation of GI into new developments and the group will aim to share best practice.

Additionally, projects related to other linked agendas will be supported for the common good, such as the Green Space Means Health project which has been running in urban areas across the county.
