Operating Plan front cover

Operating Plan 2020/21

We are committed to listening to the people of the South, to do things differently and to empower everyone to help them make the South of Scotland an even greater place to live, work, visit, learn and invest in.  Our Operating Plan provides a focus for the rest of the financial year, as well some achievements and priorities as we look ahead to a wider period of consultation in order to develop our strategic action plan for the region. Read our Operating Plan 2020/21.

State Aid 

We have extensive state aid powers and are legally obliged to publish information about our state aid schemes. Public assistance represents state aid if it provides an economic advantage to commercial undertakings and that advantage might affect international trade and competition. Find out more about our State Aid Schemes.


Pivotal Enterprise Resilience Fund

Covid-19 Grant Support  

We have administered over £12m of Scottish Government funding to almost 300 businesses across our region through the Pivotal Enterprise Resilience Fund (PERF) and Creative, Tourism and Hospitality Enterprises Hardship fund. Many of the businesses would not have survived without this vital support. Find out more about the grants that we have administered.
