Angus Council is continuing to keep the region in work after the second phase of programme to stimulate local business was approved yesterday (Thursday).
The Survive and Thrive initiative will continue to support the business sector in Angus by stimulating construction activity and will be expanded in the second phase.
This will include securing land for future affordable housing developments, increasing employment and training opportunities, and ring-fence funding to build specialist housing for Forces’ veterans.
Convener of Neighbourhood Services, councillor Donald Morrison said: “This investment will see a number of economy boosting construction projects delivered in the coming years.
“While Survive and Thrive helps first time buyers who live or work in the county to achieve home ownership, I’m pleased to see that the next phase will also focus on employment and training opportunities which will further benefit Angus residents and local businesses.”
