Green Network draft supplementary guidance

This draft supplementary guidance sets out where the Green Network can be improved and extended, particularly in areas where significant new development is planned. 

We want to know what you think about the draft guidance and the plans to improve Midlothian’s Green Network. The consultation runs until Tuesday 3 April.

The Green Network includes:

  • parks
  • woodland
  • hedges
  • verges
  • footpaths
  • cycleways
  • rivers, ponds and lakes. 

It provides space for people and wildlife, improving the quality of the environment in and around our towns and villages.

The commitment to produce this Supplementary Guidance was made in the Midlothian Local Development Plan, which was adopted in November 2017.
