What is Regeneration?

Regeneration is a 'process of reversing the economic, physical and social decline of places where market forces alone won't suffice'.

Why is it important?

Regeneration is about building sustainable communities, which means they are economically, socially and physically sustainable.

Our regeneration strategy gives the framework for local action to tackle area inequality, create opportunities and improve communities. Regeneration is about targeting funding to support change according to the needs of communities. It means ensuring our activity focuses on outcomes and put communities first, involving local residents and empowering communities to take action themselves.

What funding is available?

Delivery of Regeneration in Scotland

The Local Government and Regeneration Committee report on the 'Delivery of Regeneration in Scotland' was published on 24 February 2014. Throughout 2013 the committee met with communities across Scotland to hear their thoughts on local issues and, where appropriate, how communities could best be supported to carry out future regeneration projects themselves. The report included these fact-finding visits as well as written submissions and oral evidence sessions.

The Scottish Government responded to the Committee's report on 12 May 2014.
