The Scottish Government’s Regeneration Strategy describes regeneration as a “holistic process of reversing the economic, physical and social decline of places where market forces alone won't suffice”.
We want our most disadvantaged communities to be supported and our places to be sustainable and promote well-being. We support regeneration and development in our most deprived communities, whether urban or rural.
Regeneration is vital in supporting sustainable economic growth by tackling area inequality, addressing market failure and increasing opportunities for areas of need to attract investment and jobs.
Over £273m has been invested in regeneration activity from regeneration budgets since 2007/08. More information on our funds:
