Green Infrastructure Strategic Intervention
On 24 August 2020, Scottish Natural Heritage will changed its name to NatureScot. On this day we also moved to our new home within the NatureScot website. This website is no longer being updated.
The Green Infrastructure Strategic Intervention aims to improve Scotland’s urban environment by increasing and enhancing greenspace in our towns and cities, especially close to areas of multiple deprivation. This will make these areas more attractive for people to live and work in, and therefore attract jobs, businesses and further investment.
We intend to deliver a minimum of 15 capital projects across Scotland that improve or create at least 140 hectares of urban green infrastructure. We also intend to deliver 10-15 smaller community engagement projects where the focus is on working with people to help them make the most of their local greenspace.
