Comhairle Welcomes Additional Funding Support for Business

Comhairle nan Eilean Siar has welcomed the additional funding support for business announced by the Scottish Government yesterday. 

The package includes £120m to extend the small business grant scheme to provide a 75% grant on additional eligible properties and £100m to support the self-employed and viable micro and SME businesses. 

Comhairle Leader, Roddie Mackay, said “It is good to see such a positive response from the Finance Secretary to our concerns about businesses falling between schemes and the Comhairle will continue to work hard to ensure that this funding gets to where it is needed as quickly as possible.”
