£750,000 for green projects

LOCAL organisations in South Ayrshire delivering environmental projects which will transform the central belt could benefit from a share of £750,000 funding following an extension of the Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN) Development Fund.

The fund, which has contributed £2.4million to more than 100 projects over the past two years, aims to support the development and implementation of environmental projects. The funding is available to organisations and individuals that can demonstrate they are delivering CSGN priorities such as woodland expansion and restoring vacant and derelict land for green network purposes.
