Supporting our High Streets

Scotland's recovery must be focussed on Scotland's needs. Our local high streets in East Renfrewshire are at the heart of community, and this support is vital.


Today the SNP announces ambitious plans to support local businesses recover and rebuild from the pandemic.


The package of measures to support our high streets includes:


100% non-domestic rates relief for retail, hospitality, leisure and aviation sectors this year, with an investment of £719m.


£275m over the life of the parliament to support community-led regeneration and town centre revitalisation.


Steps to support the development of 20-minute neighbourhoods.


A £10m “Scotland Loves Local” fund - to encourage people to shop locally when they can, helping keep wealth within their community.
