greenspace scotland recently published The State of Scotland’s Greenspace report which shows that Scotland can rightly claim to be a nation of green towns and cities. Urban Scotland is more green than grey, with greenspace covering over half (54%) of the urban land area.

The total area of greenspace in urban Scotland is 1,593 square kilometres – that’s equivalent to 22 Loch Lomonds or one-third of the area of the Cairngorms National Park. At a more human scale, that translates into a tennis court sized area of ‘publicly accessible’ greenspace per person.

Public parks and sports areas (which are the accessible public spaces most often used in daily life) account for 4% and 9% of greenspace respectively. Of real concern is that 40% of respondents agreed or agreed strongly that ‘the quality of my local greenspace has reduced in the past 5 years’ (up from 33% in 2011 – and rising to 50% for respondents from the most deprived areas)

A spokesperson commented, The State of Scotland’s Greenspace Report highlights the need for urgent action to reverse the declines in greenspace quality and use – and the negative impacts they are having on our health, our communities and our environment.”

Unfortunately the organisers have had to cancel this event due to the weather forecast for strong winds and even stronger gusts which are well above acceptable limits for the safe use of inflatables (bouncy castles etc) and borderline acceptable limits for the safe use of open fronted marquees. It is hoped the event will be re-organised for later in the year.
