On the 27th February 2014 t Hartlepool Borough Council adopted the Green Infrastructure Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) and Action Plan.

Where planning contributions are secured towards green infrastructure as part of a planning application the SPD and Action Plan will be used to direct the contribution to the most appropriate scheme in relation to the application.The Action Plan will be regularly reviewed and updated to reflect when schemes are implemented and where new proposals and schemes come to light.

The Green Infrastructure SPD and Action Plan was subject of two consultation periods during 2013/4. The Tees Valley Nature Partnership took part in the consultation.
