The bid to secure a City Deal is led by a strategic partnership of the Leaders and Chief Executives of the four local authorities that deliver services across the Tay Cities region.
Angus, Dundee City, Fife and Perth & Kinross Councils will work together with Community Planning Partners to achieve this. They will not succeed without the support and guidance of private sector businesses and voluntary sector organisations across the region.
The shared vision:
\"We will create a region where fair business growth, social inclusion and skills development is at the heart of everything we do. Our vision is to become a cohesive region of knowledge with a culture of creativity within Scotland and the UK. By focusing on the skills, knowledge and expertise of our people, we can boost innovation, economic growth and productivity within our region.\"
If you\'ve got a great project idea to help grow our economy proposals for projects are now being accepted. Please read the Tay Cities Deal overview and guidance notes for stage 1 project proposals before completing the project proposal form.
