PERFECT (Planning for Environment and Resource eFficiency in European Cities and Towns) builds on the success of previous TCPA-led, EU-funded projects on planning for climate change mitigation and adaptation. PERFECT aims to improve the implementation of regional development policies and programmes, in particular investment for jobs and growth, through the integration and awareness-raising of the multiple benefits of green infrastructure into partner municipalities. It will:

  • identify and analyse good practice in multi-use of Green Infrastructure;
  • fully engage Managing Authorities on the socio-economic benefits of Green Infrastructure to influence new projects and improve governance of policy instruments;
  • increase the professional capacity of key stakeholders in delivering new projects, and;
  • develop action plans focusing on policy change to influence strategic investment in green infrastructure based on its multiple benefits.

The eight project partners are: 


1.    TCPA, UK (lead)

2.    Cornwall Council, UK

3.    Social Ascention of Somogy Development, Communication and Education Nonprofit Ltd., Hungary

4.    Provincial Government of Styria, Austria

5.    City of Amsterdam, Netherlands

6.    Regional Development Agency of the Ljubljana Urban Region, Slovenia

7.    Bratislava Karlova Ves Municipality, Slovakia

8.    Municipality of Ferrara, Italy

PERFECT began in January 2017 and the first, highly successful partner meeting was held in London in February 2017. This incorporated workshops and study tours, and partners started to share experiences on good practice in implementing green infrastructure according to its various benefits. Further details of this, and all other aspects of the project, can be found on the PERFECT website.
