S5W-15685: Michelle Ballantyne (South Scotland)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 27 March 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what plans it has for round five of the Coastal Communities Fund.

Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 25 April 2018

The Coastal Communities Fund (CCF) is a scheme that we have inherited from the UK Government as part of the overall funding settlement agreed in the Fiscal Framework. The CCF is currently a competitive scheme with no guarantee of success and we understand that some coastal parts of Scotland have not so far received any CCF funding.

I am currently considering what the best way forward is in future and in the meantime I have committed to supporting the current projects through to completion.
