Scotland is committed to sustainable development and place-making to drive forward economic growth and wellbeing. With £10bn worth of infrastructure investment agreed for Scotland’s main six city regions, opportunities are at an all time high to set Scotland apart for urban livability with an integrated approach combining green, blue and grey infrastructure solutions.
