Title of Item/Report
Draft Stockton-on-Tees Green Infrastructure Strategy 2009-2021
Record of the Decision
Cabinet considered a report that presented a draft Green Infrastructure Strategy for Stockton-on-Tees. Developed in consultation with a number of partner organisations, the Strategy set out a vision for the future development and management of the Borough’s green infrastructure, highlighting how this would contribute towards a wide range of environmental, social and economic objectives.

It was explained that as delivery of the Strategy would be based on a partnership approach it was proposed that a Stockton-on-Tees Green Infrastructure Task Group be established. The group would oversee development of the Action Plan, coordinate its delivery, and input to any future review of the Strategy. Cabinet was given details of the possible membership for the group.

It was noted that the draft version would be subject to a period of public consultation, with Ward Councillors, Renaissance Partnership Board and Town/Parish Councils invited to comment.

The final version of the Strategy would be accompanied by an Action Plan, setting out specific projects to be delivered by the Council and its partners. Policies within the Local Development Framework and other strategies and plans would also contribute towards its successful implementation.
