Statement from Iain Rennick, our Head of Green Infrastructure Fund


Thank you for your interest in the Green Infrastructure Community Engagement Fund (GICEF). We have taken the decision to postpone the launch of our second funding round of the GICEF and the accompanying open events planned for 3 and 7 August in Glasgow and Edinburgh respectively.

Glasgow Stalled Spaces

Local groups and organisations across Glasgow are invited to submit proposals for temporary activation of any stalled or underused open spaces in the city. Glasgow City Council is looking for innovative and socially engaged projects to help breathe life into a stalled space. Closing date 18 August. Need inspiration?

We are well on the way to our Learning Lessons event for organisations who have applied for Green Infrastructure Funding, staff from sister Strategic Interventions, partners from Scottish green infrastructure (GI) network, organisations that are potential applicants in future funding rounds.

As we move to the delivery phase of the Green Infrastructure project, opportunities are emerging to tell others about what we are doing, and in turn to learn from their experience. In May, we were pleased to be invited to attend a major conference in Essen organised by German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB).

The Green Infrastructure Strategic Investment is a unique opportunity for SNH to create and improve green infrastructure on a major scale and to demonstrate how it can make a real difference to the lives of people in areas where it is most needed.

In 2017, Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) awarded £5.8 million from its Green Infrastructure Fund to seven projects that will improve local green space in some of the most deprived, urban areas in Scotland. Match funding from other sources will result in a total investment of £19.6 million. Five of the seven new projects are in west Central Scotland at Possilpark, Easterhouse, Clydebank, Castlemilk & Fernhill, and Cardonald. The other two projects are at Middlefield in Aberdeen and Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. The projects were chosen because of their good green infrastructure design, their strong links to neighbouring communities and the range of benefits they will bring to the areas where they are based.
