EAST Renfrewshire council has signed a concordat with an environmental project which should benefit the people of the area.

The agreement is with the Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN) — Europe’s largest greenspace initiative — which is looking to transform Central Scotland into a place where the environment adds value to the economy and where people’s lives are improved by its quality.

The council has signed up to CSGN’s Local Authority Concordat, recognising its commitment to formally help deliver the CSGN vicion and highlight the role local authorities have to play in helping to achieve the network’s aims.

Keith Geddes, char of Central Scotland Green Network partnership board, said: “In order to achieve the CSGN aims of delivering a high quality green network that will meet the Scottish government’s environmental, social and economic objectives, we need to share resources, best practice and new thinking.”
