Levelling up through urban green infrastructure

Commissioned by the National Trust, a new report by Vivid Economics calls for at least 1% of the £640 billion of gross capital investment on infrastructure be spent of greening the poorest neighbourhoods. Such valuable investment could bring £200 billion in physical health and wellbeing benefits. The three interventions proposed are greening urban streets, upgrading poor quality parks and creating regional parks and forests in the urban fringe. The report can be found here.
