The Green Network will deliver benefits for people and wildlife by creating: 

  • a successful, sustainable place;
    e.g. by designing the Green Network into regeneration plans Clyde Gateway is becoming an attractive place where people want to live and work
  • a natural, resilient place;
    e.g. by protecting and enhancing peatland and water environments the Seven Lochs Wetland Park is providing natural resilience to extreme weather events
  • a connected place;
    e.g. by integrating the Green Network into the masterplan for Maidenhill planners are ensuring the development provides opportunities for exercise and promotes mental wellbeing on off-road paths and cycleways
  • a low carbon place
    e.g. new woodland planting at Old Mine Nature Park is transforming this old industrial site into a local wildlife refuge whilst locking up carbon emissions


The Partnership has been a champion of the Green Network vision for more than ten years. It has helped to drive forward many innovative green network projects across the region in that time.
