Place Based Investment Programme

The Place Based Investment Programme (PBIP) was announced by the Scottish Government in May 2021. The programme provides local government with a share of £140M over 5 years to support and advance place-based capital investment and build on the strong partnership currently existing through the Regeneration Capital Grant Fund (RCGF).

West Lothian Council's allocation over the 5-year period will be over £4.5m with £1,000,000 available for 2022/23. The grant is for capital expenditure, and it is expected that expenditure will be met, or at least work or contracts signed or commenced, by 31 March 2023.

Projects are expected to have a value of £100,000 or above and be ready to implement. 

At the Council Executive on 8 February 2022 it was agreed that West Lothian's approach would split the fund 50:50, with £500,000 going towards Community Wealth Building Capital Projects, and £500,000 for Town Centre Capital Investment.

Applications must be for capital projects that address at least one or more of the five principles of Community Wealth Building. Information on the approach and examples of capital projects can be found in the application guidance.
