Green Networks and spatial planning – from principles to practice
Tuesday 2nd November 2010, The Barceló Hotel, Stirling.
For: Planners and policy makers in local government, agencies, NGOs, Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN) partner organisations.
Scotland’s National Planning Framework 2 identifies a Green Network for Central Scotland as the key national project to achieve a step change in
environmental quality. Scottish Planning Policy guides planning authorities to make provision for green networks for their multiple benefits.
This event will:
1) Look at approaches and lessons for the CSGN around mapping and delivering green networks through the planning system.
2) Highlight current research and resources to support the development and delivery of multi-functional green networks.
3) Discuss further work that is needed to support the delivery of the CSGN and green networks elsewhere.
Speakers will address the practical lessons learned so far by SESPLan, Glasgow and Clyde Valley Green Network Partnership and The Highland
Council when integrating green networks into spatial plans. Workshops will take a closer look at projects, including the use of SUDS and
masterplans, aimed at creating multifunctional green networks. Discussion sessions will examine how the lessons being learned can help to
build capacity, improve understanding and support practice.
A market place will offer the opportunity to learn about other projects and initiatives that have the potential to contribute to the planning and delivery of
