Chapter 8 Delivering green infrastructure through strategic development: some reflections from Cambridge, UK and Cambridge, USA
Restricted access

Green infrastructure is a concept that continues to evolve, with local factors often being significant in terms of defining the lines of policy and action pursued. This chapter explores this point by focusing on the strategic measures that are being taken by authorities in Cambridge (UK) and Cambridge in the USA (in the state of Massachusetts). In addition to exploring the key agendas being followed, and where these appear in a document and statutory planning sense, the chapter also explores the mechanisms, and the type of outcomes, that can be practised and achieved through strategic development. The chapter does this by exploring two different schemes – a greenfield urban extension (Cambridge, UK) and a large previously developed site (Cambridge, USA).
