The Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region Deal

Minimize

A City Region Deal is a mechanism for accelerating growth by pulling in significant government investment. By investing this funding in innovation, skills and infrastructure, performance will be significantly improved, and we will tackle inequality and deprivation.

The 6 local authorities (which include Midlothian Council) that make up the Edinburgh and South East Scotland City region, together with regional universities, colleges and the private sector signed Heads of Terms on a City Region Deal with a value of over £1.1bn. The Deal will drive productivity and growth while reducing inequalities and deprivation.
