Hi Paul
Interesting, 33% by 2036 is probably more like 50% after allowance for ADB
& such like.

The Right stuff isn’t what it used to be - I mean climate change means new
opportunities and necessities. Do we learn by looking at what we have or
could have ? - but that’s a whole new topic!

Great stuff

Thanks

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
