Landscape, Heritage and Green Infrastructure
How can the Development Plan encourage better hedgerow maintenance in rural areas i.e. planting of native species instead of walls and fences, protection of wildflowers on banks, layered mowing of verges?
How can green infrastructure (system of trees, parks, gardens and wild areas) be better integrated into the planning of towns and villages?
Can we find a way to incorporate wild areas in housing estate parks that provide havens for insects, birds and small mammals?
