What does good GI look like?

There are nine GI principles and standards that have been developed to support policy making and design of new developments, with the aim to create great places for people and wildlife to thrive.

These standards will help with; policy and strategy writing, master-planning, design, and the implementation of development. They can be applied to GI projects and to the management and maintenance of GI.

These GI principles will help deliver better greener places across Essex placemaking and placekeeping. These principles were translated into nine GI standards that defines the outcome that is required to ensure the GI principles have been achieved.
