This major review of research published by greenspace scotland and the Quality of Life partnership relates to the links between greenspace and a range of quality of life issues.  It is hoped that the review will help disseminate existing research findings and to inform the need for future research.

The areas reviewed were:

  • health and wellbeing
  • social and community value of greenspaces
  • economic value/impacts of greenspaces
  • environmental value of greenspaces
  • planning and design

Robust search criteria were applied so that this was a critical literature review with a strong emphasis on quality research.
