The fund is open to community organisations to support capital projects which will make real and lasting improvements to town centres.

Mr Neil said: “Scotland’s town centres need to be fit for the 21st century, offering a diverse range of businesses, services and activities that meet local demand. There are already a few examples of communities getting involved in their town centres, introducing innovation and helping to reclaim them as vibrant social spaces.”
