PLACE BASED regeneration investment in argyll and bute
PLACE BASED regeneration
Over the last decade, Argyll and Bute Council has taken forward an ambitous capital regeneration programme which has helped to stimulate further public and private sector investment. Projects ranged from the provision of new schools, bringing buildings back into productive use and upgrading public realm in each of our key towns. These council investments have attracted a substantial level of external funding that has helped transform a number of our town centres securing residents homes for the future, restoring civic pride, bringing redundant property back into productive use and enabling new businesses to open.
