Adopt a green space

Your community group can adopt a green space in Midlothian, and maintain it along with the council for the benefit of the community and biodiversity.

Read more about adopting a green space.

Once you adopt a green space, you must renew the adoption each year. The annual submission deadline is 29 April.

If you miss the deadline

Your group can still help maintain a green space. However you will not have formally adopted the space.


We will ask for contact details of 3 persons, ideally as part of a larger steering group of 5 or 6 persons. This is to ensure there is enough community engagement to fulfil the tasks over the year.
