A Town Centre Fund of £1.08 million has been made available to Angus by the Scottish Government. Angus Council will distribute that amount to the seven burghs based on population size.
The fund will be invested in new ideas and transformative, sustainable projects – initiatives that can help town centres to flourish and diversify, as well as boost local economies and visitor numbers.
In Angus, the funds will be allocated as follows: Arbroath £312,294; Brechin £94,050; Carnoustie £148,709; Forfar £184,142; Kirriemuir £77,215; Monifieth £107,411; Montrose £156,180.
Angus Council is looking for members of the public to make suggestions regarding what the money should be spent on. Suggestions can be made via the Shaping Angus website, and the deadline for making suggestions is Wednesday 31 July 2019.
