These resources pages are intended to give the context behind the development of Green Networks in Scotland.

Green Networks are developed and implemented through regional and local plans, that use current planning advice and guidance that are provided by public and professional agencies.

The Planning Policy page shows why green networks have their place in Scottish Planning policy, from the strategic national developments to local development planning.

The Advice and Guidance page summarises the information available from government, statutory bodies such as Scottish Natural Heritage and the Forestry Commission and other organisations and professional bodies.
