Question reference: S6W-23667

  • Asked by: Brian Whittle, MSP for South Scotland, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party
  • Date lodged: 7 December 2023
  • Current status: Answered by Patrick Harvie on 21 December 2023


To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S6W-22651 by Patrick Harvie on 16 November 2023, for what reasons an approved application including rural uplift would not be paid.


As outlined in the response to question S6W-22651, applicants have 9 months to complete works and claim their funding from the date that their funding application is approved. This means that payments to applicants are often made in the months following their application approval.

Approved funding applications will not be paid if the applicant fails to submit a valid claim for the approved amount of their application.
