First Secretary of State meets with Council about City Region Deal

Friday 11th August, 2017


First Secretary of State Damian Green and Stirling Council Leader Scott Farmer

First Secretary of State Damian Green met with senior officials from Stirling Council earlier today as negotiations on Stirling’s City Region Deal continue with both UK and Scottish Governments.

The City Region Deal sets out an ambitious transformation programme to deliver a healthier, wealthier and greener future for the Stirling and Clackmannanshire area. It proposes a number of key projects that will develop the area’s key sectors, achieve sustainable economic growth and tackle the economic and social inequalities that exist between our most and least advantaged citizens.

Stirling Council Leader Scott Farmer said, “Our City Region Deal will make sure that Stirling becomes a place of opportunity for all, as well as a world class destination of choice for business and tourism. I am grateful to the First Secretary of State for taking the time to visit us to hear about our plans and to see first-hand the positive impact this could have for our region. The negotiations with Scottish and UK Governments are progressing well and we are working towards a Heads of Terms Agreement.”
