Funding Available for Growing Central Belt's Greenspace
Strategic greenspace improvement projects in Central Scotland can now benefit from a share of an additional £270,000 following an extension to the Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN) Development Fund.
The CSGN is Europe’s largest greenspace initiative which seeks to transform Central Scotland into a place where the environment adds value to the economy and where people’s lives are enriched by its quality.
Organisations in the central belt seeking to deliver strategic projects which promote healthier lifestyles and enhance the local environment within the CSGN geographic area can apply for a share of the funding available to new projects.
Successful applications will join around 20 existing projects already sharing over £600,000 previously allocated by Forestry Commission Scotland (FCS), Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) and the Scottish Government in the previous round of the CSGN Development Fund.
