Introduction

Plymouth is one of the most unique and diverse natural environments of any city in the country. Over 40 per cent of the city is designated as green space, and is surrounded by three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), a European Marine Site, a Marine Conservation Zone and Dartmoor National Park.

This provides an enviable setting with an abundance of green spaces and marine areas which, as well as contributing to health, are able to provide natural solutions to climate change impacts, including reducing flooding, improving water quality, and enabling wildlife to thrive.

The Plymouth Plan is Plymouth’s single, integrated strategic plan owned by Plymouth City Council and its partners. This is shortly to be integrated with the Joint Local Plan, a joint plan between Plymouth, South Hams and West Devon which looks at every aspect of how we want our cities, towns and villages and green space to look and feel over the next 20 years.
