ROSEANNA WELCOMES SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT TOWN CENTRE CASH FOR CRIEFF & KINROSS

Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP has welcomed the news that Crieff and Kinross are to benefit from a share of the area’s £1.9 million slice of a Scottish Government fund for town centres.Perth & Kinross Council’s Strategic Policy and Resources Committee were today asked to put forward £600,000 towards ‘costs linked to the Drummond Arms’.  

Ms Cunningham said:

"This is great news.  The saga of the Drummond Arms has gone on for far, far too long.  The owners allowed it to fall into a dreadful state of dangerous disrepair, so I am really pleased that the Council has agreed to use some of the town centre funding from the Scottish Government to support the redevelopment of this important and historic local landmark.  It really would be fantastic to see the building back in use and benefiting the community once more."

A further £800,000 is to be spent boosting tourism in Kinross. The money will go towards improving links between the town centre and the Loch Leven area.  

Ms Cunningham added:

"Tourism is an important and continually growing sector of the local economy.  The history associated with Loch Leven and the beauty and ecological importance of the area make it a magnet for visitors.  Improving the links between Kinross and Loch Leven not only improves the experience of visiting Loch Leven – for tourists and locals alike  it also helps ensure that businesses in the town will benefit from any increase in tourist numbers."
