To ask the Scottish Government when it will publish details of its proposed town centres fund, and what its position is on the Scottish Retail Consortium’s call for business improvement districts and other organisations to be eligible to bid for funding.

Answered by Derek Mackay (29/01/2019):

The £50m Town Centre Fund will be a ring-fenced capital fund within the local authority capital settlement to enable local authorities to stimulate and support a wide range of investments which encourage town centres to diversify and flourish, creating footfall through local improvements and partnerships. As such, the Scottish Government will work in partnership with COSLA and local authorities to deliver this investment. Officials are working with COSLA to develop proposals on how this fund will be distributed and allocated and details will be announced as soon as possible to support delivery over 2019-20.
