Central Scotland Green Network Fund

January 24, 2013

Strategic greenspace improvement projects in Central Scotland can now benefit from a share of an additional £270,000 following an extension to the Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN) Development Fund.

The CSGN Development Fund 2013 -14, supported by Forestry Commission Scotland and Scottish Natural Heritage, is intended to aid the development and implementation of projects delivering the Central Scotland Green Network on the ground.


Organisations in the central belt seeking to deliver strategic projects which promote healthier lifestyles and enhance the local environment within the CSGN geographic area can apply for a share of the funding available to new projects.

Relevant projects include those which encourage regeneration and enterprise and help to join up the network, particularly in areas of multiple deprivation or where there are concentrations of vacant and derelict land.

This year organisations can bid for up to two years of funding, enabling them to plan for the longer term, thereby increasing their environmental impact.

In this fourth year of the Fund, the focus is on larger scale projects and so applicants must apply for a minimum contribution of £25,000 in Year 1 (2013/2014). Overall, projects can receive up to 50% of the total project costs, with the balance made up of both in kind contributions and match funding.


Funding applications must be submitted to Forestry Commission Scotland by 12.00 noon on Friday 25 January 2013.

More details on the CSGN Development Fund and the application form, are available on the Forestry Commission Scotland website.
