Cash for green projects
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.”
The application form and guidance are available at www. centralscotlandgreennetwork.org.
