Following last week’s Referendum on the future of the UK in Europe, SNH has received initial advice from The Scottish Government that we should progress the first phase of the Green Infrastructure Fund as planned. This means that we expect to be able to award projects which will complete by the end of 2018 and that we intend to run a second funding round, closing in October, as planned.

Our Head of Green Infrastructure Fund attended the TCPA/ Green Infrastructure Forum conference in London this month. She was particularly struck by the evidence around the positive health benefits of access to green space and has shared some of the slides here.

In response to feedback from Round 1 applicants, we are revising the Application Form. Please do not use Round 1 Application Forms in preparing your application for Round 2. If you do, your application will not be accepted.

Designing a green infrastructure project well right from the beginning can make all the difference to a funding application to implement an idea. The CSGN Ideas Fund supports the development of innovative concepts/projects.
