The paper reviews literature by SNH, other Scottish agencies and academic institutions that describes the best analytical and evaluative methodologies that can be used in greenspace research. The evidence discussed is wide-raging, including both the socioeconomic effects of greenspace to individuals, and the benefits from changes in land use.
