The Glasgow and Clyde Valley (GCV) Green Network Partnership, together with the Central Scotland Green Network Trust (CSGNT), have today launched the Planning for Green Infrastructure brochure, providing a guide to exemplar green infrastructure planning policies.
The planning system has an important role to play in safeguarding existing green infrastructure and securing delivery of connected, accessible and well-designed new green infrastructure. This new brochure highlights the key policies to help achieve this.
greenspace scotland is working with North Lanarkshire Council and CSGNT (Central Scotland Green Network Trust) to support the development of a Food Growing Strategy for the area. All Scottish Local Authorities are required to develop a Local Food Growing Strategy as part of the implementation of Community Empowerment Act (2015).
Individuals and organisations with an interest in food growing are invited to participate in a workshop to identify local food growing opportunities and meet others who are interested in growing their own food too. Please join us for soup and a chat to develop food growing in your area!
