St Patrick Square regeneration bid

The Council is working up a bid for money to improve St Patrick Square. The bid is for public money which was allocated to the Town Centre Regeneration Fund by the Scottish Government after Conservative MSPs made it a condition of their support for the budget earlier this year. The first £40m of the £60m fund was allocated earlier this month. Bids for parts of the remaining amount have to be in by the end of the months.

Council officers are currently working up a bid for St Patrick Square which will include a significant upgrade of the public realm - and possibly even a feature in the relatively unused grass patch just beside the bustop.
