|The Countryside In and Around Towns: The Green Infrastructure of Yorkshire and Humber (Countryside Agency, 2006) |
This report on the green infrastructure of the Yorkshire and Humber region, pays particular attention to the countryside in and around towns. It results from a two-pronged study which
mapped selected green infrastructure assets of the region and explored the policies and mechanisms that determine how green infrastructure is recorded, protected or enhanced.
