A total of £25million has been handed out across the country from the fund, created in partnership with COSLA, with 26 projects overall being supported from this round of funding.

Communities Secretary, Aileen Campbell, said: “Together with COSLA we have invested almost £200 million through this fund since 2014 in support of locally-led regeneration projects which help to build the resilience and wellbeing of communities.

"I am pleased that a further 26 projects will benefit from the fund as we look to a period of recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We have had to lead our lives locally, pulling together more as communities, to see off the many challenges arising from coronavirus.

"This latest round of investment into local projects continues our ongoing support for vibrant and accessible town centres and communities.”

COSLA’s Environment and Economy spokesperson, Councillor Steven Heddle, said:

“This work has never been more important as we look to rebuild from the devastating impact of COVID-19.

"Recovery from the virus must be fair to our communities and promote inclusivity, growth and wellbeing.

“The innovative projects announced today can empower our communities to deliver better places to live and work.”
