Green Roofs and Planning

Posted on Sun, 2016-07-03 13:29 by Rosie M.
Architects, property developers and property owners often ask a variety of questions, including how the planning scheme affects the design of green roofs, what local government planners value in green roofs, which councils welcome green roofs, how the Civil and Administrative Tribunal views green roofs and what it values in them.
On 16 December 2014, the Municipal Council of Recife, Brazil, approved the Green Roof Law. This law requires buildings with more than four floors to have their roofs covered with native vegetation. The law also applies to any commercial building with more than 400 square meters.
