Town centre improvement funds
Apply for Town Centre Capital Funds
Midlothian Council has been allocated £910,000 from the Scottish Government’s £50 million Town Centre Capital Fund. The aim is to drive local economic activities and to re-purpose town centres to help them become more diverse, enterprising, accessible, and sustainable.
Type of projects
Funding is available for capital projects, such as new facilities, repairs and refurbishment work to existing buildings, physical improvements to town centres, and the purchase of equipment.
Projects over £10,000
There is no minimum or maximum award but given the nature of the funding, requests are expected to be for projects over £10,000.
Who can apply?
Applications are welcome from local groups, charities, third sector organisations, social enterprises and business groups. Council-led applications will be submitted and assessed alongside applications from outside bodies.
Initial expressions of interest must be submitted by 12pm on Friday 28 June 2019, with second-stage applications to be submitted by Friday 30 August. A decision on the successful projects will be announced in early October.
Application forms can be completed online and returned by email or printed and returned by post.
