Southampton City Council – Green Factor

   Councils  

Southampton is a densely developed city with little opportunity to create new green space.  Southampton City Council therefore needed to adopt a broader approach to green infrastructure by trying to green up built development through the use of landscape planting, street trees, green roofs and green walls.  This has been incorporated into the City Centre Action Plan which requires all developments to assess the potential of the site for appropriate green infrastructure and provide suitable qualitative improvements.

 

The Southampton Green Space Factor tool and guidance can be found here.
