WHAT DOES AN INNER CITY URBAN GREEN PLAN LOOK LIKE? 

WHAT ARE ITS KEY COMPONENTS? 

 

WHAT PUBLIC BODIES DO WE NEGOTIATE WITH, 

TO SEE SYSTEMIC URBAN CHANGE? 

 

The Groundswell Ecosystems 'URBAN GREEN PLAN', its first iteration collaborated on with members of Kensington and Chelsea XR and environmental professionals, is a response to an Environmental Supplementary Planning Document consultation process embarked on in February 2021 with Kensington and Chelsea Council's Environment and Planning Team. 

As we urgently engage in discussion and negotiation regarding the key tenets of environmentally sound urban plans for a safe future, the 'URBAN GREEN PLAN' document is a template for negotiators to contribute their ideas in a structured way, ultimately to create a workable blueprint for the ideal inner city 'Urban Green Plan'. 

DOCUMENT FORMAT

  • Air

  • Earth 

  • Water 

  • Food 

  • Waste

  • Energy 

  • Transport

  • Housing and Planning 

  • Finance and Governance 

and groups them strategically to reflect urban functioning.

 

Each key area is then sub-divided into: 

  1. Key Issues
