Scottish Natural Heritage seeks feedback from housing associations on green infrastructure

Green infrastructure can reduce flooding, promote wildlife diversity and have benefits on mental and physical health and wellbeing.

Scottish Natural Heritage, a body funded and directed by the Scottish Government, is carrying out research into green infrastructure developed by Scotland’s housing associations. Green infrastructure can include plants and gardens, ponds, trees and hedges and may include sustainable urban drainage systems.  

Green infrastructure can reduce flooding, promote wildlife diversity and have benefits on mental and physical health and wellbeing.

As part of the research, a survey of housing associations is being carried out. The purpose of the survey is to find examples of green infrastructure developed in social housing and identify any barriers that prevent green infrastructure being created. 

The survey is live until Friday 20 October 2017. 

The questionnaire includes an invitation to register an expression of interest in taking part in facilitated workshops to explore the issue with key stakeholders.
