‘Placemaking’ funding released for near dozen Glasgow projects

A HANDFUL of topical and key ‘place’ themes – such as ’20-minute neighbourhoods’ and community-led regeneration and wealth building – lie at the heart of 11 projects in Glasgow to receive ‘placemaking’ funding from the Scottish Government.

Some £3.217million of funding has been allocated to Glasgow City Council from the Scottish Government’s Place Fund to support projects, including the revamp of a shopping centre in the Castlemilk area of the city and the conversion of a building (pictured) for meeting space and ‘low carbon’ initiatives, such as a tool library and local food growing, by the environment and community group, South Seeds, also based in the south of the city.

Says a city council announcement, here: “The £3.217million funding – for the 2022/23 financial year – follows £3.699million provided through the Place Fund during in 2021/22.”
