Working with our partners, the delivery of the CSGN is improving central Scotland’s environment, helping to sustain and enhance the area’s biodiversity, landscape quality and wider ecosystems. In doing so we also seek to help address inequality and attract inward investment into the area.
The CSGN Annual Review 2014-2015 introduces some of the many projects which are helping to make central Scotland a more attractive place to live, to visit and to do business in.
We are extremely grateful for the expertise which our partners bring to the delivery of the CSGN. The following are just some examples of the many successful partnership projects taking place across central Scotland, more of which can be found in the CSGN Annual Review download.
The Ayrshire Green Network Partnership launched the Ayrshire and Arran Forestry and Woodland Strategy, which aims to provide a policy and spatial framework to guide woodland management and expansion to maximise the associated benefits for the region’s people, environment and economy.
Lothians and Fife
The Lothians & Fife Green Network Partnership (LFGNP) has continued its work alongside Fife Council and SEPA to make improvements to the Lyne Burn Green Network. The partnership project will help to prevent flooding through drainage enhancements to the greenspace and active travel route.
Glasgow Clyde Valley
The Glasgow Clyde Valley (GCV) Green Network Partnership promotes the Integration of Green Infrastructure (IGI) across the region. The Partnership supports flagship projects such as the creation of an innovative urban masterplan at Maidenhill in East Renfrewshire.
The Forth Valley Orchards Initiative is just one example of the many successful CSGN Development Fund recipients that are having a positive impact on local communities. The initiative’s training workshops and roadshow events engaged with nearly 900 people, inspiring them to plant, care for and use orchards across the area.
