Thanks for clarifying Brynley,

As part of the White Rose Forest project we have secured some data from Blue
Sky to ascertain what the canopy cover of each WRF signatory Authority
currently is. The aim is to increase the canopy cover by one third by 2036. So
now we have an idea what we have, and where it is (not what it is, i.e.
species etc.), then projections can be made about what is needed and where.
Lots of landowner engagement and buy-in will be required!

There may be opportunities to develop GreenStreets SPDs for certain
Authorities if required, which may help in a Planning context.

It's only a snapshot of the proposal I'm afraid, but happy to elaborate if it
helps your query?

Paul
