Urban Greening

We’ve recently launched new Urban Greening pages on our website, providing tips and guidance to businesses looking to introduce planting and greenery to their buildings and street-level facades.

The aim of this guidance note is to provide advice to local businesses about how to create new planting and urban greening projects in privately- owned spaces across the Quarter. Urban greening is vital not only to make the area a more attractive place to visit, work and live but also to ensure that the area is a healthy, green, biodiverse and thriving neighbourhood that is resilient to climate change.

It is hoped the guidance will encourage businesses to think not just about their own property, but about working with neighbours to make a bigger impact, whether that be through installing a mix of planting and habitats for wildlife at street level, on facades or at roof level to create greener streets and corridors for wildlife. We are aware that greening interventions need to make business sense and offer value for money, so we have provided a range of ideas at different scales and for different budgets.
