Scottish Government unveils allocations for £25m regeneration fund

The Scottish government has announced 22 projects that will be allocated money from a £25 million regeneration fund.

The Regeneration Capital Grant Fund (RCGF) fund, launched in May, is intended to support projects that will deliver new and improved infrastructure for deprived areas.

Projects across Scotland set to benefit from the fund include the West Harris Trust on the Isle of Harris which will receive funding to create a community enterprise centre with visitor, community and business facilities; and the Glasgow Women’s Library which will receive funding for the refurbishment and relocation of the library.

Recommendations on which projects received funding were made to Scottish ministers and the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA) by the RCGF Investment Panel.

Housing minister Margaret Burgess said: "Investment in such transformational regeneration projects is absolutely key for stimulating economic growth throughout Scotland.

"The development of the fund, which will benefit 22 local projects, is a great example of how Scotland’s public bodies can work in partnership to deliver initiatives that help to create more jobs for Scottish people, while bringing our communities closer together and injecting new life into deprived and run down areas".
