SHN - Scotland’s local authorities are to benefit from an additional £160 million investment to spend on local priorities over the next year as part of the Scottish budget process.

The investment, which was confirmed by the Scottish Government yesterday as part of an agreement with the Scottish Green Party to support the passage of the budget bill, includes £30m of capital.

Finance secretary Derek Mackay also confirmed that an extra £25m will be made available to Police Scotland in addition to a further £35m of funding to Scottish Enterprise.

Amendments to the budget will be made later in the process and the additional funding for local government will be included in the local government finance order.
