Abstract/Summary In this review, we have attempted to define the key constructs of POS and green space, which are not well articulated in the literature. Terminology and definitions are provided early in the review, before a summary of key findings in the literature describing evidence of urban density influences green space, and the benefits of green space for physical health, mental health and wellbeing, ecosystem services and biodiversity. The report concludes with a Green Space Matrix summarising relevant green space characteristics and their associated benefits derived from the evidence, recommended principles to achieve co-benefits and a model of geographic scale for consideration in green space design and delivery.
