Applications reportedly sought to transform vacant and derelict land in Glasgow

APPLICATIONS are reportedly being sought, to help put to good use vacant and derelict land in Glasgow.

Says (here) the regeneration agency, SURF: “The Scottish Government have recently opened Round Four of the low carbon Vacant & Derelict Land Investment Programme (VDLIP) for projects seeking funding for 2024/25. This will again be on a competitive bid basis and Glasgow City Council is now inviting applications.”

And says the Scottish Government here, but not quite so explicitly (re Glasgow): “The low carbon Vacant and Derelict Land Investment Programme (VDLIP) offers funding to transform long-term vacant and derelict sites. It is open to applications from local councils and Clyde Gateway

“Applicants can bid for grants from an available £15 million in 2024 to 2025 as part of a two-stage application process. This guidance covers stage one of the process.” 

A deadline of June 23 has been set.
