Town Centre Action Plan Cover

The Town Centre Action Plan was produced in 2013

SURF Chief Executive Andy Milne was a member of the External Advisory Group for the Scottish Government’s 2012-13 National Review of Town Centres.

The Advisory Group, led by leading architect Malcolm Fraser, produced a recommendations report that the Scottish Government responded to by producing a Town Centre Action Plan.

The Scottish Government is continuing to develop projects and policy initiatives as part of this Action Plan. This includes the launch, this week, of a new £1.7m Town Centre Communities Capital Fund.

The fund is designed to support enterprising, community-led projects that help to deliver local town centre regeneration priorities. Community organisations are invited to bid for pots of capital funding (between £20k and £150k) to support projects that are in line with the key themes set out in the Action Plan.

The deadline for funding applications is Tuesday 29 September. Please click here for full details from the Scottish Government’s website.
