Ownership and oversight of the CSGN initiative was transferred to the Natural Resources Division in the Scottish Government (SG), effective from April 2014. (Prior to this date, the initiative had been led jointly by Forestry Commission Scotland and Scottish Natural Heritage).

The CSGN Programme Committee (CSGN PC) ensures progress is in line with Ministers’ ambitions (as expressed through the CSGN Vision, the National Planning Framework and other relevant plans, policies and strategies). It also seeks to establish mutually supportive links with other relevant policies and programmes.
