Love Trees? Get your share of £700,000 funding

Projects in Central Scotland that support trees, woodlands and green infrastructure, encourage community growing or promote active travel can now apply for a share of up to £700,000!

The invitation for applications comes as part of the latest phase of the Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN) Development Fund by Environment Minister Aileen McLeod.

She said: “Being able to access high quality greenspace can improve the health, wellbeing and confidence of people and communities.

“And, as Europe’s biggest greenspace project, the CSGN has already made a massive difference to the lives of thousands of people in the central belt.

“I am pleased to be able to invite applications for this latest phase of funding, for projects which will continue the transformation of the Central Belt into a better place to live, work and visit.”

The CSGN Development Fund is managed by the Central Scotland Green Network Trust, with funding provided by Forestry Commission Scotland, Scottish Natural Heritage, Transport Scotland and the Scottish Government. Support is available for feasibility projects as well as physical projects.

Over the past six years, the CSGN Development Fund has supported more than 150 projects with £5.8 million.
