Liverpool's forward-thinking approach to the planning of green assets such as woodlands, parks and street trees has been recognised at the national Royal Town Planning Institute Awards.


The city's green infrastructure strategy – commissioned by Liverpool City Council and Liverpool PCT, written by The Mersey Forest, and being delivered by partners including Liverpool Vision – received a Commendation in the Spatial Strategies category at the awards ceremony held in London.


Also recognised from the city were Cass Associates who were named Small Planning Consultancy of the Year, and Glenn Howells Architects' Lime Street Gateway project which received a Commendation in the Public Realm category.


The news follows hot on the heels of Liverpool PCT's funding of nearly 40 community projects across the city that will boost people's health by using the natural environment, all as part of Liverpool's Decade of Health and Wellbeing.
