The Government has welcomed proposals for city deals for Edinburgh and South East Scotland, Tay Cities and Stirling and Clackmannanshire, which following the agreed deals for Glasgow, Aberdeen and Inverness, will deliver a city deal for every city in Scotland.

Negotiations, undertaken jointly with the Scottish Government, are progressing well with Edinburgh and Stirling, and are due to start with Tay Cities over the summer. In terms of concluding the deals, we are working to agree Heads of Terms with the regional partners and the Scottish Government as soon as possible.

This Government is committed to promoting and supporting local economic growth across the United Kingdom; and city deals, agreed jointly with devolved administrations and regional partners, are an excellent vehicle for doing so.
