The Scottish Government has allocated Highland Council, £1,963,000 of ring-fenced Place Based Investment Programme funding for the current financial year of which Inverness Area Wards will receive £640,433 in the first round of funding.

The Programme seeks to support capital projects which deliver on place policy ambitions such as town centre revitalisation, community led regeneration, 20-minute neighbourhoods and Community Wealth Building, and are shaped by the needs and aspirations of local communities.

 In September Members of the Council’s Economy and Infrastructure Committee agreed that an area-based approach would be adopted to manage the Scottish Government’s Place Based Investment Programme grant for 2021/22.

Provost and Leader of Inverness Area Cllr Helen Carmichael said: “This is a great opportunity for local projects to be funded. I urge anyone with a project that they think could benefit from funding support to get their application in as soon as possible as we expect demand to be high.”
