We suggest amending the principle relating to green infrastructure to incorporate different scales within the village as well as its surroundings, for example:

The proposed development will be delivered in accordance with garden village principles, with a high quality of green infrastructure within and across developments, and surrounding the village, and ambitious design. We strongly support the principle of addressing ecological issues both through on-site measures as well as through a more strategic solution which considers wider ecological networks and the landscape scale. We support the trialling of strategic solutions such as Natural England’s district licencing among others.

Summary
Suggest amending the principle relating to green infrastructure to incorporate different scales within the village as well as its surroundings.
