  • Scotland Loves Local Fund

    Created: 10/08/2021

The Fund will support eligible groups to develop projects to build the wealth of our local communities, revitalise our local places, town centres, or 20 minute neighbourhoods; increasing footfall and activity.

    • marketing and advertising;
    • providing information for local residents/residents;
    • small scale green infrastructure projects; and/or
    • refurbishment/enhancement of vacant and derelict sites.
