Stevenson Welcomes Cash Boost for Fraserburgh and Peterhead

Stewart Stevenson, SNP MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast, has welcomed a boost in funding from the Scottish Government for Fraserburgh Development Trust and Peterhead Projects as part of the Strengthening Communities Programme.

The Scottish Government announced an additional investment of more than £600,000 for community projects across Scotland – including new funding for the Fraserburgh and Peterhead groups.

Mr Stevenson said:

“This is a very welcome funding boost for Fraserburgh Development Trust and Peterhead Projects which both do fantastic work in the community – and confirms the commitment of the SNP in government to empowering communities across the country.

“This new funding from the Scottish Government is designed to help our communities deliver economic and regeneration benefits to the local area – from local job creation to renewable energy generation – and I warmly congratulate Fraserburgh Development Trust and Peterhead Projects on their success.

“This investment shows exactly what we want our Community Empowerment (Scotland) Bill to achieve when it is introduced in the near future, giving people in Scotland’s communities the tools they need to shape the future of their local areas.


“This vital new funding will allow Fraserburgh Development Trust and Peterhead Projects to grow further and continue to undertake important work in our community – and I look forward to working with them in the years to come.”

The additional cash boost is designed to build the capacity of local community organisations which deliver economic and regeneration benefits to their areas by refurbishing disused buildings, developing renewable energy projects and creating jobs opportunities.
