Kent County Council's BGI project in George Park, Margate, has been highlighted as the Green Infrastructure Project case study in the 2021 Kent Property Report!
"The George Park project highlights how surface water management can be integrated into open space and provide benefit to the community. As part of the EU Interreg BEGIN project, the wider benefits for the George Park project were assessed using B£ST (Best Estimation Tool – CIRIA 2019) and included benefits for flooding, health, education, water quantity and enabling development. The total benefits accrued an economic benefit of £471,530 which outweighed the net present value of the project at £321,530. It is these wider benefits that provide greater value to the drainage project. The plan shows the layout of the scheme."
