Inverclyde Green Network

inverclyde imageNational, regional and local policy agendas strongly support the development of a Green Network in Inverclyde, which has been identified as a national priority for regeneration.

In 2008 the GCV Green Network Partnership, working with Inverclyde Council, Riverside Inverclyde (the local Urban Regeneration Company), and Communities Scotland funded and commissioned a Green Network Strategy for Inverclyde.

Inverclyde's Green Network will encourage investment in the area by establishing a vibrant economic, cultural and natural environment. The Green Network will contribute to regeneration of the Waterfront as well as remodelling of residential areas. Riverside Inverclyde is coordinating efforts to transform Inverclyde into an unrivalled business and residential location.

The Strategy promotes the development of better links both within and between the communities of Inverclyde and outward to Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park.

Through creation of Inverclyde’s Green Network communities will be encouraged to be actively involved in the management of their local environment. A wide range of opportunities will also be made available to residents and visitors to access and enjoy Inverclyde's natural and cultural heritage.

The Inverclyde Green Network Strategy highlights opportunities to:

  • Improve perceptions of Inverclyde and promote links to Clyde Muirshiel Park as a major environmental asset
  • Protect and enhance the Green Network through use of the Partnership’s Planning Guidance
  • Establish interpretation points promoting the area’s natural, social and cultural value
  • Co-ordinate the long-term management and delivery of the Green Network through partnership
  • Ensure integration of the Green Network into the structural fabric of Inverclyde’s built environment

 As a result of the strategy two further studies were commissioned on behalf of the Inverclyde Green Network steering group with funding from the GCV Green Network Partnership.
