Landscape Institute publishes 12 key asks of the new government

The Landscape Institute has published its 12 key asks of the new government, covering issues that will be vital for our membership and industry in 2020 and beyond

Over the next year there are likely to be huge policy shifts that affect both our sector and the nation as a whole.

The LI will be working closely with government to ensure that landscape’s voice is heard, and to argue for people, place, and nature.

The new government must take action on climate change, ensure as smooth a transition as possible as we leave the European Union, deliver critical investment to design, and support our members in delivering quality, healthy, sustainable places for the UK.

The 12 points are:

Climate and biodiversity action

  • Cut net emissions across the whole country
  • Start building places that are climate change ready
  • Commit to Environmental Net Gain (ENG)

Landscape after Brexit

  • Mitigate Brexit risks for landscape business
  • Secure the skills we need
  • Maintain and enhance EU-level environmental protections

Design for people

  • Champion high quality design
  • Set and enforce higher place standards
  • Embed public health in place

Maximise green infrastructure

  • Invest in green infrastructure with maintenance
  • SuDS as the default option
  • A joined-up approach to land management
