If you missed the Open event in Clydebank, here is a link to the slides. The FAQs will also be updated to address any questions asked at the event.  We will let you know when the updated version has been published.

The National Rules for the European Structural and Investment Funds have been updated and are available to download from the Scottish Government's website. The updated information can be found on page 27 of the document.

Transport Scotland’s Pre-Application Support Fund (PASF) is now open for applications. PASF is offering funding of up to £10,000 to help public, community and third sector organisations develop ideas for the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) Low Carbon Travel and Transport (LCTT) Challenge Fund.

 

A new digital greenspace map for Scotland will be available as open data from Spring 2017. No other country has managed to map their greenspace in this way before.

More information from the news release on the Greenspace Scotland website.

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.

Your greenspace project idea may be too small scale for SNH’s Green Infrastructure Fund but have you considered ‘Tesco Bags of Help’?

Thank you to those organisations who applied to the Green Infrastructure Fund.  We received six applications in the Lowland and Upland Scotland area. These have now been screened and have passed on to be assessed by our panel of assessors.
