Asset management of blue green infrastructure – guiding principles (P3219)

Increasingly, blue-green infrastructure (BGI) is being implemented to deliver multiple benefits including flood risk management; air quality improvement; amenity provision; carbon sequestration; increased biodiversity; and health and wellbeing. 

To efficiently manage BGI it is important to have an appropriate asset management framework that documents its location, cost, required maintenance, risks and potential consequences of its failure, its functional life expectancy and means of disposal or renewal. It is also important to quantify the benefits that BGI create so that BGI projects can be equitably assessed and prioritised for investment alongside more traditional infrastructure projects.

Project status
