Green Infrastructure Projects

Living Levels

The Living Levels Landscape Partnership aims to reconnect people and communities to the Gwent Levels Landscape and provide a sustainable future for its unique historic landscape. It is supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Key strategic aims, objectives and outcomes were derived through a Landscape Conservation Action Plan, which was informed by a Gwent Levels wide: Landscape Character Assessment, GI strategy and Visitor Experience and Destination Plan.

Three programmes and a range of associated projects have been identified:

  • Programme 1. – Conserving and Restoring
  • Programme 2. – Understanding and Appreciating
  • Programme 3. – Learning and Engaging

Gwent Green Grid Partnership (GGGP)

The Gwent Green Grid Partnership is a Welsh Government funded ENRAW consortium of key partners (including the 5 Gwent local authorities including NRW, Forest Research and Severn Wye Energy Agency) and stakeholders (including NGO’s and other interest organisations). They will deliver a consistent approach to Green Infrastructure management across Gwent and a collaborative framework that will inform the delivery of the SE Wales Area Statement. It will act as a key delivery mechanism that enables strategic planning, ecosystem service assessment, eco-connectivity and mechanisms that create healthier citizens, stimulates business opportunities and provides community benefits (cohesion, skills development and volunteering).

A series of key programmes and associated projects will deliver opportunities over a 3-year period under the following themes:

  • 1. Regional GI strategy and collaborative framework
  • 2. Regional Access Plan
  • 3. Gwent i- tree Eco study pilot areas
  • 4. Gwent GI projects
  • 5. Pollinators friendly Gwent.
