Brechin councillor Mairi Evans has welcomed the news that the Angus economy has received a boost.

Commenting on the announcement that the county has regained Assisted Area Status she said she was delighted that the council’s campaign to have the area reinstated on the Assisted areas’ map had been approved.

“This is great news for Angus and will provide funding incentives for local businesses to grow and develop,” said Mairi, who is the council’s convener of development and enterprise.

The move was approved by the European Commission last week following lobbying by Angus Council.
