Regeneration

What is the Scottish Government's vision for Regeneration in Scotland?

Our vision is a Scotland where our most disadvantaged communities are supported and where all places are sustainable and promote well-being. This vision is set out in our Regeneration Strategy.

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?
