Macduff Councillor Welcomes Scottish Government Funding for Tarlair

>> 30 May 2022

Troup Ward SNP councillor Ross Cassie has welcomed over £360,000 of funding from the Scottish Government towards the rescue of the historic Tarlair Pavilion and outdoor pool complex.

This funding is from the second-year allocation of the Scottish Government Place Based Investment Programme (PBIP) which is designed to support coherent investment decisions that respond to local community priorities for their places. The PBIP is expected to be a five-year Programme, lasting until 2025/26 with further injections of funding to be confirmed annually.

Central to the delivery of the Programme is ensuring that investment decisions are shaped by the evidenced needs of local communities, regenerate and revitalise towns and villages, help tackle inequality and disadvantage, and accelerate Scotland towards ‘net zero’ emissions goals. Projects are also expected to offer sustainable and impactful benefits to the places in which they are delivered.

Welcoming the funding, Cllr Ross Cassie said:

“Restoring a once popular attraction to its former glory is to be welcomed. The pool along with the restoration of the iconic art deco pavilion will become a jewel in the crown of Macduff.

“I’m delighted for the Friends of Tarlair which will allow them to progress to the first stage of their ambition to bring the whole site back into productive use.”
