Stevenson Welcomes Banff Funding Award

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed the award of £500,000 to Banff in the latest round of Historic Scotland’s Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme.

Historic Scotland is an executive agency of the Scottish Government charged with safeguarding Scotland’s historic environment. The Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme awards funds to encourage local authorities to help spur economic regeneration through investment in their historic environments. Banff was previously awarded money in the first round of the Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“I am delighted to see the Scottish Government celebrating the value of beautiful, historic Banff in this way. The funds will help preserve the buildings of Banff while also bringing jobs to the area and boosting the local economy.

“I am always struck by the history, and architecture in Banff, and this funding award will help to ensure future generations can enjoy those sights as much as we do.”
