Since June last year the bodies charged by Government with leading this initiative, Forestry Commission Scotland and Scottish Natural Heritage, have been working closely with a wide range of bodies to explore just what this initiative could offer. Work has been carried out to identify early priorities, to meet strategic needs, accelerate action and address barriers to delivery.
The culmination of this work was launched last week at Motherwell College on the Ravenscraig site in the form of a ‘prospectus’ that sets out a vision and proposed goals for the initiative.
The Prospectus is now open for consultation. Running alongside this, the Support Unit are also consulting on the Draft Vision and Work Plan (2010-2015). Both documents and a questionnaire along with further details about the consultation are available at: www.centralscotlandgreennetwork.org/consultation
There will be a number of workshop sessions relating to the consultation in late May / early June. We will send further details of these shortly and also post details on our website.
We will also be using the CSGN Community of Practice to host a number of online events and open up discussion surrounding the CSGN.
