Our Vision

Our Vision is of a transformed environment which improves lives and communities and lets business flourish. We aim to make the Glasgow metropolitan region one of Europe’s most attractive places to live, work and play.

Our 2009 Seeing the Bigger Picture video provides an overview of what the Green Network is and our role in making that happen.

As well as championing the Vision, we are here to help others (local authorities, planners, engineers, architects) create innovative solutions. Take a look at What we can do for you or contact us to find out more.

Learn more about individual projects:

  • Seven Lochs Wetland Park – Destined to become Scotland's largest urban wildlife site, the Seven Lochs Wetland Park is an exemplar of Green Network planning and delivery.
  • Integrating Green Infrastructure – Over the coming decades the GCV region will see significant urban expansion and regeneration. The development of new communities represents a major opportunity for the integration of Green Infrastructure at an early stage.
  • Opportunities Mapping – In these challenging economic times justifying the allocation of scarce resources has never been more important, and prioritisation based on robust and defensible evidence is key to ensuring value for money.
  • Climate Change Adaptation – Climate Change leading to higher temperatures, changing precipitation patterns and sea level rise is a reality in Scotland. The Green Network presents a significant opportunity to build climate resilience into our built environment whilst delivering more desirable places to live and work.
