CLYDE GATEWAY WIN SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT FUNDING
Clyde Gateway has been announced as one of 23 community-based initiatives to be awarded money through the Scottish Government’s Regeneration Capital Grant Fund.
An investment of £3,350,000 is set to be spent on Shawfield’s Green Regeneration Innovation District (GRID) Campus.
The GRID Campus development will build on the work created at Shawfield Phase 1 by diversifying the property offering and supporting local businesses through the development of industrial space on a previously remediated site within the Phase 2 area.
Two flexible industrial units will be developed at Southcroft Road providing up to 2,700 sqm (units of 1,945 and 755 sqm) and creating new industrial/manufacturing jobs together with construction and training opportunities.
A spokesperson for Clyde Gateway said:
“We welcome the RCGF funding for the Shawfield GRID campus which will give our efforts to deliver new energy efficient industrial space a much-needed boost.”
Rutherglen MSP Clare Haughey added:
“The Scottish Government’s commitment to Clyde Gateway and their regenerative work in Rutherglen is evidenced through this latest round of funding.
“Clyde Gateway are continuing to transform Shawfield which is bringing in new businesses to the area and in turn new jobs to our community.”
