Your original request was to ask the Scottish Government in the past 5 years what funding provided to local authorities, relevant to both infrastructure and regeneration, has Inverclyde Council (1) bid for and received/rejected. (2) not applied for.

I attach a copy of some of the information you requested in Annex A. In addition, the Scottish Government publishes information on capital investment here:, as well as details of Scottish Government energy efficiency grant allocations to local authorities as part of Area-Based Schemes - (

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance the Scottish Government does not have some of the information you have requested. This is a formal notice under section 17(1) of FOISA that the Scottish Government does not have some of the information you have requested.
