Ideas invited for regeneration projects

GLASGOW City Council is reportedly seeking suggestions for regeneration projects, using a Scottish Government-funded scheme.

Says the Scottish Government, here, of its Place-Based Investment Programme: “[It] is being used to link and align place-based funding initiatives. The aim of the PBIP is to ensure that all place-based investments are shaped by the needs and aspirations of local communities and accelerate our ambitions for place, 20-minute neighbourhoods, town centre action, community-led regeneration and community wealth building.”

To be eligible, suggestions must be “delivered in partnership with communities and local government; [deliver] the twin priorities of economic recovery and tackling inequality; [and] requires a sustained and co-ordinated place-based approach”.

And, reports the regeneration organisation, SURF, a deadline of June 12 is required by the council.

SURF continues, here: “In previous rounds of the fund, the city council – working in partnership with local organisations including housing associations, regeneration agencies and cultural organisations – secured several millions of pounds for a variety of projects.”
