Successful, healthy urban areas rely
on strong green infrastructure

Yet we are unable to
measure the benefits

This leads to a lack of investment,
under or even the wrong provision

Urban greenspace is vitally important for our quality of life and health in urban areas, supporting recreation, relaxation, health and community building, while also providing space for wildlife, absorbing rainwater and removing harmful air pollutants.

As we seek to build at higher densities within urban areas and local authority budgets come under increasing pressure, Greenkeeper has been developed to help us all better understand the full value, as opposed to cost, of urban greenspace. By building a view of the economic, social and environmental value a green space delivers, the tool helps us all understand how existing space is being used, what needs to change/be added and in turn support the investment decisions taken to support its delivery.
