Nurture & Protect: Liverpool City Region’s green infrastructure needs to be protected and enhanced to achieve these benefits

Liverpool City Region’s  green infrastructure will only remain an asset if its quality, scale and accessibility are protected and enhanced.

There are many threats to our GI including:

  • reduction in the resources to invest in and manage our GI;
  • parks and green spaces can be perceived as a cost and risk reduction in management and investment can lead to losing their environmental, social and economic qualities
  • development may present risks to green space and biodiversity
  • climate change and resulting environmental change threaten biodiversity
