Under reference to the Minute of the Meeting of the Greener Renfrewshire Thematic Board held on 29 August 2016, there was submitted a report by the Head of Public Protection, Community Resources, Renfrewshire Council relative to the Low Carbon Travel and Transport (LCTT) Challenge Fund.

The report advised that NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, Strathclyde University and Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park had each offered to combine their proposed applications with Renfrewshire Council however, the project failed to obtain sufficient capital commitment from the other major partners to meet the minimum project value which had resulted in the project not meeting the eligibility thresholds for European Regional Development Funding and no application being submitted.

It was noted that the project still had potential and officers would now develop a revised project and continue to explore funding options for a smaller project which would include all of the key elements and benefits of the original.

Transport Scotland had been informed of the progress made to date and they had advised that should project funding become available for lower cost projects the Council and its partners would be in a strong position to be able to submit an application.

DECIDED:

(a)   That the award of pre-application support funding for the Low Carbon Travel and Transport Challenge Fund and the subsequent completion of the funded feasibility report by SWECO be noted;

(b)   That it be noted that Renfrewshire Council had been unable to submit the joint
application for LCTT Challenge Funding on behalf of Renfrewshire Council, NHS Glasgow and Clyde, Strathclyde University and Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park; and

(c)   That the proposal to investigate taking forward the project at lower cost be noted.
Report by Head of Public Protection, Community Resources, Renfrewshire Council.

There was submitted a report by the Head of Public Protection, Community Resources, Renfrewshire Council relative to an update on the Stalled Spaces Scotland Renfrewshire
programme. 

DECIDED:

(b)   That Architecture and Design Scotland’s proposal to hold a Scottish Stalled Spaces learning event in Paisley and the ongoing discussions with Engage Renfrewshire on proposed arrangements be noted.
