13/11/09: More material added to 'GardensNOTcarparks'

site, with pointers to some new resources and 'lines of argument'.

In particular, I have drawn attention to the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment's very good new booklet 'Grey to Green', which argues that green infrastructure does not receive anything like the investment or management that goes into grey infrastructure, and that this should change dramatically given the multiple benefits and climate change mitigation value that would result.

It is downloadable here:

Much of it is applicable to local authorities, and should be of interest to current and aspiring green-minded Councillors.
