Abstract

Swaffham, a small English market town, is developing a town plan to direct growth and development in the town. In addition to directing new development, the plan will also include guide redevelopment in the town centre and recreation areas. The Town Group is using principles of green infrastructure planning throughout the town plan to guide development and redevelopment. Green infrastructure is a new theory in smart growth planning that values the ecological benefits of green and open space as well as the social and economic values of planned development. This project used green infrastructure planning to develop recommendations for redevelopment projects in the town centre and assisted the Town Council in their preparation for upcoming consultations about the possible development sites.
