  1. Initial mapping of the law and policy landscape relevant to integrated planning and delivery of Green Infrastructure (GI) initiatives.
  2. Analysis of law and policy opportunities and barriers towards the delivery of the project aims and objectives.
  3. Liaise and collaborate with Neath Port Talbot Council staff to support and inform the development of GI Assessments.
