Surrey Environmental Management Study

The City of Surrey used a novel, science‐based approach to identify a network of natural and semi-natural areas – called the Green Infrastructure Network (GIN), across the city. It used detailed vegetation mapping and spatial analyses to identify a connected network of natural areas including large hubs (>10 ha), smaller sites, and habitat corridors. The GIN mapping has been used for neighbourhood planning, and is currently the foundation for a biodiversity conservation strategy.
