Fire Recovery Fund

The Cabinet Secretary for the Economy announced a Fire Recovery Fund for businesses impacted by the Sauchiehall Street fires.

Payments of £20,000 will be made to qualifying businesses which are or were inside the cordons, and payments of £10 000 will be made to qualifying businesses outside of the cordons.

As of this afternoon (August 10) we have received a number of applications, which are now being processed by the Scottish Government. However, we believe some eligible businesses have yet to apply.

Open for Business

New way-finding signs and information for shoppers and visitors, presented by Sauchiehall Business Improvement District, are now in place.

The branding, which has been applied to fencing around the fire location and at various other locations around the city, highlights businesses on Sauchiehall Street and current walking routes.

Sauchiehall Street open at Victoria's site

Sauchiehall Street reopened to pedestrians between Renfield Street and Hope Street on August 3.

All businesses previously within the safety cordon have access to their premises.

While some fencing remains in place while work to reconnect services continues, we hope to be able to remove this soon.
