To ask the Scottish Government when it will launch the infrastructure investment plan that was referred to in the 2016 SNP manifesto; what discussions it has had or plans with stakeholders regarding this, and whether it will provide a breakdown of (a) what the plan will do and (b) how much funding it will receive and how this will be allocated.

This plan will be developed by Historic Environment Scotland in partnership with government and the historic environment sector, in line with the strategy set out by the sector in Our Place in Time. We are currently at a very early stage of considering how a long term infrastructure investment plan might operate to the optimum benefit of Scotland’s historic environment. Funding levels will be determined in the light of developing spending plans as part of the forthcoming spending review.
