The GCV Green Network can only be fully realised and implemented through an effective, collaborative approach. The role of the GCV Green Network Partnership (GCVGNP) is therefore absolutely crucial to delivering our vision for transforming places and lives and makes a critical difference by:
- delivering a change in thinking and
- delivering a change on the ground.
The Executive Team’s role includes:
Making a case for support
The Partnership has been a champion of the Green Network vision for more than ten years. Working at both local and national government level in, the GCV Green Network Partnership helps to embed Green Network thinking into new policies and guidance, and presents compelling evidence on the range and scale of benefits that will emerge from the implementation of the Green Network in our area.
Securing new funding
The Partnership acts as a facilitator to ensure funds are in place for delivering Green Network initiatives and projects in the Glasgow City Region. It carries out financial studies to estimate costs – even in these challenging times – to allow work to be carried out. It submits funding applications, seeks out match funding and identifies future funding opportunities.
The Partnership does not provide direct funding for Green Network projects.
Delivering on the ground
The Partnership is a catalyst for Green Network delivery on the ground, identifying priority locations through strategic spatial analysis. Developing local strategies and contributing to design plans, the Partnership is instrumental in facilitating new project collaborations and helping to deliver ambitious initiatives that contribute to our Green Network vision.
The GCV Green Network Partnership has worked extremely hard over the last few years to bring the relevant people together and move Seven Lochs forward. I think their role has been crucial.
