SNP councillor and Buchan Area Committee Chairman Cllr Stuart Pratt has welcomed financial backing for the Peterhead Retail Plus project from Aberdeenshire Council, which was ratified today.
At its meeting in December, the Buchan Area Committee agreed that Peterhead should benefit from opening up the Retail Plus scheme – which has proved successful in Fraserburgh – to applications from local businesses. Funding for this was approved at today’s meeting of the council’s Policy & Resources Committee.
Explaining the scheme, Cllr Stuart Pratt said:
“Feedback from Fraserburgh, where the scheme has already been rolled-out is that businesses there found it very useful and I hope that Peterhead businesses will be able to use the scheme to their advantage once it opens for applications.”
