New funding for Ferry

Ferry Ward councillor Kevin Cordell has welcomed news that new funds are to be made available for community groups in Broughty Ferry.

The Ferry ward will receive £10,000 funding to assist in neighbourhood projects and activities to help people living in deprivation and improve the environment.

The funding comes as part of a re-organisation of funding allocated to the Dundee’s Regeneration Forums which amounts to £846,000 in total.

Council Cordell said: “Of Dundee’s eight electoral wards, only the Ferry and the West End did not meet the funding criteria as set out under the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation and whilst I fully agree that other areas in the city have greater levels of deprivation I have argued that no area should miss out on funding.

“I am therefore delighted to see this new money coming to the Ferry.”
