Good morning Mr Lander,

 

Thank you for your follow up questions in relation to the Freedom of
Information Request Case Ref. 202000047987.

 

As requested please find attached a copy of *pre October 2019 application
criterion*" 

 

With regards to your second question, could I ask that you set out
specifically what you are looking for?  I have forwarded to you a link to
all of the projects SPRUCE have funded
[1]https://www.gov.scot/publications/spruce...

 

This published information sets out:

 

1.    Who SPRUCE’s client is

2.    What the project is

3.    Highlights the environmental impact of each project where
appropriate

 

Given we do have time to answer your response I am happy to forward any
additional information you are seeking to a colleague within the
Regeneration Team.  This will allow me to keep the channel of
communication open without you having to raise an additional FoI to a
different team.  

 

Kind regards,

 

Tracey
