Description
This dataset includes City of Melbourne’s mapping of greening potential in laneways across the municipality. 'Greening' in this dataset refers to four types of possible greening responses: forest lanes, farm lanes, park lanes and vertical gardens. Higher gridcodes indicate lower potential for adaptation - i.e. a gridcode of 1 is optimal. This dataset can be used the general public, developers, landscape architects and other interested parties who want to know what the future of green laneways may look like for Melbourne. This dataset can be used as a starting point for greening projects including forest, farm and park lanes as well as vertical gardens Anyone interested in potential greening within the city should contact the City of Melbourne or visit the Green Infrastructure webpages found on the <a href="https://www.melbourne.vic.gov.au/community/greening-the-city/green-infrastructure/Pages/green-roofs-walls-facades.aspx/"> City of Melboune website here</a>. The <a href="https://www.growinggreenguide.org/">Growing Green Guide</a> is another helpful and comprehensive guide for the building and maintaining green roofs, walls and facades in Melbourne and Victoria. The Laneways with greening potential dataset is part of a larger suite of work by City of Melbourne to explore and implement contemporary and unique ways of greening in the city that can help combat increased urban density and loss of public open space. Green laneways are an exciting way to liven up the city, and help residents and visitors to explore Melbourne while also combating increasing threats of stormwater runoff, the urban heat island and biodiversity loss.
