To ask the Scottish Government whether it will continue to distribute funding to (a) national parks and (b) local authorities, as part of its Edinburgh Process Fund, in 2023-24.
The Scottish Government and COSLA have recently agreed that Local Authorities will receive an allocation from the Nature Restoration Fund to continue the Edinburgh Process strand in 2023-24. We will be writing to Local Authorities and our two National Parks shortly to advise of their allocation. We are not taking forward a competitive element of the Edinburgh Process in 2023-24.
