    Abstract

    This report examines the first stage in the design of a new Blue and Green Infrastructure (BGI) Strategy for Colchester Borough. Closely connected to ‘green infrastructure’ (GI), BGI refers to an integrated approach to managing, improving and/or reintroducing natural and seminatural green (vegetation) and blue (waterways) spaces in both urban and rural contexts. BGI has four key benefits: promoting biodiversity; mitigating and adapting to climate change; human health and well-being; and creating prosperous communities (Natural England, 2022). These translate into a wide variety of environmental, social and economic benefits (ECC, 2020, p. 37)
