Access to green space and fresh air is vital for the wellbeing of our residents. It is also important for flood risk reduction, biodiversity, food growing, air cleaning and capturing carbon.
Biodiversity and green spaces
Climate change is damaging the habitats that are left. This is not only critical for wildlife, but for us too. As a housing provider we need a green infrastructure to help reduce overheating, prevent flooding and trees help to reduce air and noise pollution.
Improving and increasing biodiversity and open spaces and having access to community space is also important for residents.
