A Truly Collaborative Project Team

Following an award of part-funding for development from Innovate UK, Greenkeeper was developed and is now supported by a truly collaborative project team. In addition, an established pilot and advisory group fed into the tool during its creation, to ensure it met market requirements and drew upon the best knowledge available, from a natural environment, real estate, health and governance perspective.

Barton Willmore is one the UK’s largest independent planning and design practices, with inter-disciplinary teams in many of the major cities throughout the country.

We guide projects and inform policy at all scales across the private and public real estate sector, combining our strategic approach and experience at scale, with strong local knowledge nationwide. On this project, we brought together skilled Landscape Designers and strategic Planners together to develop a tool which meets the challenges we all face within the real estate sector, day-in-day out, when considering and supporting urban greenspace proposals. Our ultimate aim is to fundamentally transform decision-making around the current and future provision of urban greenspace, in order to maximise benefits for both existing and future communities.
