The 2020-21 Programme for Government announced the creation of a Place Based Investment Programme Fund with £275million of capital funding to support community led regeneration, town centre revitalisation, community wealth building and 20 minute neighbourhoods. It is a multi-annual capital fund with the Scottish Government distributing £38 million this financial year to local government, of which £975,000 was allocated to Aberdeen City Council. £545,000 remains available for allocation to projects this financial year.
The Grant is to be used in the financial year 2021/22 and is solely for capital expenditure. It is essential that expenditure will be met, or at least work or contracts signed or commenced by 31 March 2022.
