The ground-breaking Borderlands Inclusive Growth Deal has now been signed.
Borderlands have just announced the signing of the Borderlands Inclusive Growth Deal today, the first cross border Deal, covering the largest area of any of the growth deals agreed to date. It commits fresh investment of over £450m into the region and will be jointly funded by the Scottish Government (£85m) and the UK Government (up to £265m), to bring a total contribution of up to £350m. This will be supported by around £100m of local funding.
The Deal is an integrated investment package with a balance between high profile place-based projects and Borderlands-wide investment programmes that respond to the rural nature of the region.
