Tom Arthur – 2022 Comments on Transforming Derelict Land in Scotland

The comments made by Tom Arthur, the Community Wealth Minister, on 10 May 2022.

Derelict sites are often found in more disadvantaged areas and can hold back development of communities.

This programme is delivering community regeneration and tackling climate change, in line with our national strategy to transform the economy and deliver sustainable and inclusive growth and a fairer society.

At the same time as announcing these grants, we are opening the programme to projects seeking funding in 2023/24 and I look forward to building on the momentum generated by today’s investments.
