Projects fund­ing up for grabs

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Peo­ple in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang are in­vited to put for­ward in­no­va­tive con­cepts and projects in South La­nark­shire for a com­pe­ti­tion to win up to £ 5,000 fund­ing from the Cen­tral Scot­land Green Net­work (CSGN) Ideas Fund.

The fund sup­ports the devel­op­ment of pi­o­neer­ing greenspace and green in­fra­struc­ture projects, from con­cepts in their early stages of re­search, scop­ing and fea­si­bil­ity to those fur­ther on in the de­sign process which are ready to trans­form their vi­sion into re­al­ity with project devel­op­ment, test­ing or de­liv­ery.

Keith Ged­des, chair of CSGN, said: “As Europe’s largest greenspace ini­tia­tive, we aim to sup­port or­gan­i­sa­tions in de­liv­er­ing the green net­work on the ground. The CSGN Ideas Fund is an ex­cel­lent plat­form which en­cour­ages cre­ativ­ity in greenspace and green in­fra­struc­ture think­ing. We’re look­ing for­ward to see­ing what this year’s en­tries bring.”

Ent r ies should be sub­mit­ted by noon on Mon­day, June 6. Three short­listed projects will go for­ward for pre­sen­ta­tion at this year’s CSGN Fo­rum, on June 21.
