A new CCTV system is set to be installed at the town centre of Huntly following a £76,869 funding from the Aberdeenshire wide fund.
The scheme, which is part of the Scottish Government Place-Based Investment Programme (PBIP), aims to support coherent investment decisions that respond to local community priorities for their places.
Huntly Community Council says that a CCTV system will help make their town centre safer and attract additional footfall that would benefit the local business and the evening economy.
The PBIP is a five-year programme that is expected to inject funding annually to help improve local facilities and town centres and to support regeneration activity.
Chair of Aberdeenshire Council’s infrastructure services committee, Councillor John Crawley said: “Once again we are seeing a wide range of fascinating community projects being supported by the Place Based Investment Programme which will help create more inviting, accessible and resilient attractions across the region.
"These funds will help community groups create vibrant, successful places for local residents and visitors to enjoy for many years to come.”
Vice-chair Councillor Isobel Davidson added: “In addition to the community projects which are aimed at attracting tourists to the region, it’s heartening to see schemes being supported financially which will help boost our retail and commercial marketplace.”
