Urban green space
Green space within urban areas provides the opportunity to enhance social, recreational, cultural, environmental, educational, physical and mental health, and economic well-being of communities.
WWT Consulting has extensive experience of enhancing existing sites and creating new urban green spaces for cities across the world. Our designs treat habitat creation as an opportunity to maximise other benefits, such as stormwater control and treatment of urban runoff. More information on these aspects of our designs can be found within the wetland treatment system pages.
Fundamental to all our designs is the creation of high quality habitat that maximises biodiversity. Our team of hydrologists, ecologists and soil scientists produce designs that enhance the urban environment by bringing wildlife closer to people. We are fully aware of health and safety issues when people interact with water so ensure our designs allow people to safely enjoy wetland environments.
