The Govanhill Baths project will receive £2.15million, Possilpoint £1.5million and the Kinning Park Complex £1.2million.

The Regeneration Capital Grant Fund (RCGF) is a Scottish Government budget, developed in partnership with COSLA and local authorities. It has an annual budget of £25million and aims to provide financial support to projects that will help to deliver large-scale improvements to deprived areas. It focuses on projects that engage and involve local communities and those that can demonstrate the ability to deliver sustainable regeneration.

Over the previous five annual rounds of the RCGF, Glasgow City Council has been successful in securing funding for a number of regeneration projects. Completed projects include Cadder Community Centre, Westmuir Street School, and Barmulloch Community Regeneration Project, and a contribution to the Calton Barras Action Plan.

Current projects that are benefitting from RCGF awards include Royston Community Centre, Provan Hall House in Easterhouse, the Citizens Theatre redevelopment, Govan Old Church, and Sighthill Enterprise Wharf.

Further detail on each of these projects is available at:

Councillor Kenny McLean, City Convener for Neighbourhoods, Housing and Public Realm at Glasgow City Council, said:

“This support from the Regeneration Capital Grant Fund is very welcome, and will help to deliver valuable community services in Glasgow. It is exciting to see these projects, led by people from Glasgow communities and supported by a number of organisations including the council, moving forward and continuing to make a difference in their areas and across the city.”
