Greenspace projects that will improve the environment across Scotland's central belt can now apply for a share of a £350,000 funding boost, contributing to the delivery of Europe’s largest greenspace initiative. The Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN) Development Fund will support green active travel, woodland creation and community growing projects, helping to enhance the quality of life for the 3.8m residents living and working in the central Scotland area. 

The CSGN seeks create an environment which supports sustainable economic growth, allows central Scotland to thrive in a changing climate and encourages healthy lifestyles and good physical and mental wellbeing.

Keith Geddes, Chair of the Central Scotland Green Network Trust, said:

“This new round of development funding will help to establish and support projects like the Leamy Foundation’s, which are contributing to the delivery of the CSGN.

“Projects like these are helping communities where it is needed most, and we are pleased that through this funding we are able to continue supporting a wide range of environmental enhancements across the central belt to improve the lives of the people living and working there.”

Now in its 10th year, the CSGN Development fund has distributed nearly £7m to over 160 projects.
