Urban Green Infrastructure

Scottish Natural Heritage

As part of the European Week of Regions and Cities, Scottish Natural Heritage will host a workshop on the Green Infrastructure Fund to disseminate information on the fund to our European Partners. 

The Green Infrastructure Fund managed by Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) is a national programme of investment to create and improve green infrastructure in towns and cities on a far bigger scale than previously in Scotland, using funding from the European Regional Development Fund. 

The Green Infrastructure Fund prioritises projects within disadvantaged urban communities – 30 projects in all.  The aim is to use the Fund’s projects as case studies and examples of best practice, to make arguments for greater investment in green infrastructure by others in the future more persuasive and influential.  In particular, the Fund aims to show the economic and social benefits to disadvantaged communities, and the contribution to preventative spend, such as improvements in health. 

Iain Rennick and Martin Faulkner from Scottish Natural Heritage will explain what the Fund is intending to achieve, outline some of the projects it is supporting and lead a discussion on how SNH might best disseminate the lessons learned to others and learn from other EU partners.

The overall investment in the Fund will be approximately £40m. 40% of this is from ERDF with the remainder being match funding provided by partners from a variety of sources. It is being delivered in two phases: the first from 2016 to 2020, with 7 capital infrastructure projects and 12 community engagement projects approved and underway, and; the second from 2019 to 2023 for which a funding round for new applications is due to open soon.
