Belfast City Council recently launched the public consultation on our Green and Blue Infrastructure Plan (GBIP) and Belfast Open Spaces Strategy (BOSS) which cover the period 2019 – 2035. The GBIP aims to ensure that our vegetated areas (the green) and waterways (blue infrastructure) are planned strategically to maximize economic, social and environmental benefits in and around our urban areas. The BOSS aims to protect, develop and improve access to good quality open spaces for everyone in order to improve health and wellbeing, support urban wildlife and biodiversity, and encourage investment.
Attached is a summary document which outlines the vision and strategic principles of both documents. Copies of the full documents can be downloaded from https://yoursay.belfastcity.gov.uk/parks-and-leisure/gbipandboss/ The public consultation runs to Friday 6th September 2019 and the online survey, if you wish to respond to the consultation, can also be accessed from this webpage.
If you have any queries around the consultation process, would like hard copies of either document or wish to meet with us in relation to the consultation please contact:
