A ground-breaking strategy for the delivery of sustainable growth, South Essex GBI balances opportunities for nature recovery and biodiversity with the pressing needs for new housing and infrastructure, whilst enabling a positive response to the demands of climate change. The proposals are framed within the ambitious vision for the delivery of a new regional South Essex Estuary Park (SEEPARK), which will drive effective place-shaping and levelling up for the most deprived communities. Comprehensive analysis and policy recommendations ensure the benefits of GBI are understood to enable best practice to be embedded within the planning documents and decisions guiding future development.
