Cash for green projects

Stirling Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

Com­mu­ni­ties can bring en­vi­ron­men­tal and health ben­e­fits to their ar­eas by bid­ding for a share of a £400,000 fund.

The 2018-19 round of the Cen­tral Scot­land Green Net­work (CSGN) fund­ing will of­fer in­vest­ment to projects pro­mot­ing ac­tive travel, wood­land plant­ing, com­mu­nity grow­ing and restor­ing land.

Since 2010 £6.3 mil­lion has been in­vested in more than 180 projects.

CSGN Trust chair Keith Ged­des said: “We are proud to con­tinue our sup­port of the de­vel­op­ment fund, help­ing to im­prove the lives of peo­ple liv­ing, work­ing and vis­it­ing Scot­land’s Cen­tral Belt and sup­port the de­liv­ery of a bet­ter nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment.

“Through the fund we have been able to sup­port a range of worth­while projects across the re­gion, help­ing them to make a real dif­fer­ence through the in­valu­able work they carry out.

“We are look­ing for­ward to the next round of ap­pli­ca­tions and are keen to hear from el­i­gi­ble projects that are sup­port­ing and cre­at­ing wood­land ar­eas, green in­fra­struc­ture, ac­tive travel as well as those en­cour­ag­ing com­mu­nity grow­ing.”
