Local SNP councillor Brian Topping and SNP Westminster candidate for Banff & Buchan Eilidh Whiteford have warmly welcomed today's announcement by the Scottish Government that Fraserburgh is to benefit from an award of over £¼ million towards town centre regeneration.

Councillor Topping has been a driving force in pushing for Fraserburgh to benefit from the scheme and raised the matter at a meeting of the full Aberdeenshire Council back in March, where he received a commitment from the Provost that the council would be fully supportive of a bid going forward for funding.

Commenting on the success, Councillor Brian Topping said:

"I am ecstatic at this news and for the Broch and for Fraserburgh Development Trust.

"When the SNP Government introduced this scheme I said right from the start that the Broch should be in there demanding a slice of the funding. I was delighted when I managed to get the backing of the Provost at a meeting of the full council for my proposal and I am looking forward to this money making a positive difference to our town centre.

“The SNP Government is to be congratulated for continuing to take action to protect our local communities from the effects of the "Downing Street Downturn". Along with the small business bonus which has seen rates slashed or removed for our local small businesses, this scheme will help deliver tangible benefits for our town centres."

SNP Westminster candidate for Banff & Buchan Eilidh Whiteford added:

"This is great news for Fraserburgh and I congratulate Brian on his role in helping to achieve this.

"Brian has been a key player in helping get Aberdeenshire Council to swing its weight behind this project, which has delivered this success for the Broch. I congratulate everyone involved in this achievement, particularly the Fraserburgh Development Trust."
