New Scottish Government grant will enable communities to get creative with their surroundings

Funding of £300,000 from the Scottish Government will enable communities in Scotland to have a direct role – together with design experts – in making their towns and villages better places to live.

Available as two grant schemes, the Design Charrettes programme will bring together the public, stakeholders and designers to draw up viable proposals, while the Activating Ideas Fund will support participation and empowerment initiatives in disadvantaged areas.

Minister for Local Government, Kevin Stewart, said: “The quality of our places has an important influence on our lives. This Government is committed to empowering communities and involving them in the planning process.”
