Crown Estate Scotland’s 2020-23 Corporate Plan includes the following key objective:
• We will identify a capital budget for co-investing through local partnerships with, for example, community development trusts or local authorities to make a meaningful contribution to sustainable development linked to the Scottish Crown Estate
To meet this objective we are seeking to identify investment opportunities to grow revenue and capital value whilst delivering benefits to coastal and rural communities linked to the Scottish Crown Estate through projects that involve local partnerships.
This Local Partnerships Capital Investment Fund is our commitment to support and develop local communities through commercial investment of capital, particularly where they complement existing or planned interventions that deliver place-based projects on the ground.
Applications for capital investments between £150,000 and £750,000 are invited from interested parties, ideally in partnership with other private or public funders or who can demonstrate they meet the fund criteria in other ways.
