Over the last decade, Argyll and Bute Council has taken forward an ambitious 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. Such previous projects include the £30m CHORD initiative, Campbeltown CARS, Inveraray CARS and Rothesay THI.
The council is continuing to deliver projects that support meaningful place regeneration across the area. Recent investment includes Helensburgh Waterfront and has included the £1.6m Scottish Government Town Centre Fund and £3m Tarbert and Lochgilphead Regeneration Fund, which have sought to build upon and add value to previous regeneration activity through carefully considered projects that have the potential to make Argyll and Bute a more attractive place in which to live, work, visit and invest.
