ASLA have just published a white paper outlining that "green infrastructure solutions save taxpayer money and provide community benefits by managing stormwater where it falls.
Banking on Green: How Green Infrastructure Saves Municipalities Money and Provides Economic Benefits Community-wide, is a response to the need to further quantify the economic benefits of green infrastructure."
Excellent news, but something I think we all feel intuitively is just
common sense. It's a shame that governments have to be persuaded towards
common sense solutions in the first place, with the argument (report/white paper etc..) costing money to put together in the first place.........
