Strategic planning

We are focussed on environmental and regeneration outcomes for Scotland. To set the right framework for individual initiatives to flourish requires a strategic plan that is facilitative and makes practical actions possible. That’s our key planning skill.

With our support, our partners have been able to develop, design, fund and manage strategically important projects that have delivered environmental improvements, bolstered local communities and delivered wider societal benefits.

Our strategic planning work includes:

  • Supporting the Scottish Government, local authorities, agencies and other partners to deliver action plans aligned with national/regional policy
  • Developing and managing the CSGN Delivery Plan and spatial blueprint
  • Developing:
    • climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies
    • open space strategies
    • forest and woodland strategies
    • local food growing strategies
    • active travel strategies
