MORE THAN £1.8 billion of planned investment will form the basis of the Tay Cities Deal which could create up to 15,000 jobs for the region.

Set out as a series of “asks” and “offers” across 100 pages, the Tay Cities Deal submission lists opportunities and challenges for the Angus, Dundee, Fife and Perth & Kinross economy over the next 20 years and details how investment will help the region become fairer and smarter through inclusive growth.

The total cost of the proposed investment is £1.84 billion of which £826 million (45%) over 10 years is being sought from the Scottish and UK governments and their agencies.

If every project and programme set out in the submission is funded and delivered, as many as 15,000 job opportunities could be created across tourism, food and drink, creative industries, eco innovation, digital, decommissioning, engineering, biomedical and health and care.

The document emphasises that: “The city deal is as much about offering to work differently together and with both governments as it is about seeking additional cash resource.”
