Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN) strategic routes

An aspiration of the Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN) is to develop a strategic network of walking and cycling routes for active and recreational travel. This is reinforced by National Planning Framework 3 (NPF3) national development 6 which puts an emphasis on developing strategic walking and cycling routes over 5 miles (8km) within the CSGN. With the production of a map, we are a step closer to this aim.

Developing a strategic network of walking and cycling routes across Central Scotland will help connect settlements, thus improving opportunities for journeys to work and community facilities and also for leisure. Wider benefits include boosting the local economy, tourism, the environment and health.

We developed the CSGN strategic routes map  PDF document   with help from local and national park authorities, strategic development planning authorities, Regional Transport Partnerships and Sustrans. The map shows existing, planned and aspirational routes as well as key barriers such as missing bridges and busy roads.

The map will be useful to local authority planners and others to enhance existing routes, address missing links and improve connections between communities and local paths.

You should note that the map is based on information provided by the local authorities in 2015. It is indicative at this stage, and may change as and when routes are developed.
