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 £325 million has been invested in regeneration activity from Regeneration Budgets between 2007/08 and 2014/15. More information on our funds:

Delivery of Regeneration in Scotland

The Local Government and Regeneration Committee report on the 'Delivery of Regeneration in Scotland' was published on 24 February 2014. Throughout 2013 the committee met with communities across Scotland to hear their thoughts on local issues and, where appropriate, how communities could best be supported to carry out future regeneration projects themselves. The report included these fact-finding visits as well as written submissions and oral evidence sessions.

The Scottish Government responded to the Committee's report on 12 May 2014.
