Green Infrastructure Strategic Intervention

The Green Infrastructure Strategic Intervention aims to improve Scotland’s urban environment by increasing and enhancing greenspace in our towns and cities, especially close to areas of multiple deprivation. This will make these areas more attractive for people to live and work in, and therefore attract jobs, businesses and further investment.

We are delivering 15 capital projects across Scotland that improve or create at least 140 hectares of urban green infrastructure, and 11 smaller community engagement projects where the focus is on working with people to help them make the most of their local greenspace.
