Key points from conference workshop on Heritage, Green infrastructure and the Blue Ribbon Network (BRN)

  • BRN; oppose infilling of parts of Royal Docks (Policy 7.30Ba/ para 7.103); promote use of all waterways for transport for both passenger & freight and not simply for (passenger) travel.
  • Green Infrastructure Policy 2.18C: oppose ‘dumbing down’ of policy (for access to Regional & Metropolitan Parks) from meeting access deficiencies to “help address” deficiencies. Continue to meet deficiency. Such should recognise/incorporate access to biodiversity.
  • Biodiversity enhancement to be component of several policy/text alterations, e.g. Policies 7.5 Public Realm (as part of “sustainable management”), 7.2 Lifetime Neighbourhoods.
  • Open Space etc. Policy 7.18: oppose change to title restricting scope to “Public Open Space”; use the wording for protection etc. that occurs in Policy 7.17 Metropolitan Open Space.
