Historic Scotland funding for six Scottish cities

Historic Scotland has announced £7.69 million in grants, to shared between Scotland's six cities.

Six of Scotland's cities are to benefit from £7.69 million in grants from Historic Scotland, which will be used to help 'safeguard and enhance conservation areas, the historic environment and sense of place.' Glasgow will receive £2,550,000, Edinburgh will receive £2,145,000, and Aberdeen, Dundee, Inverness and Stirling will each receive  £750,000.
 
Fiona Hyslop, Cabinet Secretary for Culture and External Affairs said: 'It is vital that we continue to improve the quality of our Scottish cities to make them better places to live, work and invest.
 
'Managing our historic environment creatively also contributes to sustainable economic growth by growing Scotland’s construction industry and increasing the availability and quality of traditional skills and materials.  Using new skills and sustainable materials in the adaptation of existing buildings will also help support the historic environment’s transition to a low carbon economy.
 
'This investment builds on our Agenda for Cities and £7 million Cities Investment Fund, which has been launched to build the momentum to make sure our cities and their regions make the fullest possible contribution to sustained economic recovery – stimulating economic recovery and job creation.'
