We are responsible for driving forward the delivery of the Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN), creating positive change for areas which need it most across Central Scotland.

This is the largest greenspace infrastructure programme in Europe.

The vision for the CSGN is that: “by 2050 central Scotland will have been transformed into a place where the environment adds value to the economy and where people’s lives are enriched by its quality”.

Our role is to engage individuals and organisations to support and deliver the CSGN vision. Our principal aim is to add value, and through delivery, create change.

The CSGN is changing the face of Central Scotland, by restoring and transforming the landscape of an area stretching from Ayrshire and Inverclyde in the west, to Fife and the Lothians in the east. The CSGN is a national development within the National Planning Framework which aims to make “a significant contribution to Scotland’s sustainable economic development”. It involves public agencies and stakeholders working together to align their policies, programmes and actions to achieve a common aim.

To achieve our ambitious vision for central Scotand, we work to:

  • drive forward and coordinate the delivery of the CSGN
  • raise awareness of, and participation in, the CSGN
  • provide support and capacity to others delivering the CSGN
  • identify spatial and thematic needs to help target resources
  • directly deliver with stakeholders projects on the ground
