A ‘Green Recovery’ is supported by the CSGN’s dual role of reducing inequality and promoting sustainable and inclusive economic activity.
Here the emphasis is on supporting projects and programmes that deliver employment and social benefits by integrating green infrastructure into town centres, disadvantaged areas, and Vacant and Derelict Land.
The CSGN facilitates projects that deliver the following actions
Transforming an area of Vacant and Derelict Land into a cycling pump track has breathed new life into the community of Craigneuk, a high priority SIMD area for regeneration. In addition to boosting health and reducing anti-social activity, it has led to the start-up of a new social enterprise and even hosted a round of the World Pumptrack Championships.
