Policy Background

Our Policy Background (link to policy background document - TO BE INSERTED) document provides some of the rationale behind the Green Infrastructure Strategic Intervention (GISI). This is not intended to be comprehensive or exclusive, and there may be policy drivers that are important in some localities that are not addressed here. The first section sets out the overarching policies, and subsequent sections focus on the policy framework of our five outcomes and the horizontal themes.

Here are key strategic policies relevant to the GISI:

  1. ERDF Regulation (No 1301/2013)
  2. European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) thematic objectives
  3. The National Performance Framework (NPF)
  4. The Scottish Government’s Economic Strategy
  5. The National Planning Framework 3 (NPF3)
  6. Scottish Planning Policy (SPP)
  7. PAN 65 Planning and Open Space  
  8. Green Infrastructure: Design and Placemaking
  9. Designing Streets  
  10. Creating Places - a policy statement on architecture and place for Scotland
  11. The Community Empowerment Act
