MUCH-AWAITED SIGNING OF TAY CITIES DEAL WELCOMED

Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP has welcomed today’s signing of the Tay Cities Deal.

Ms Cunningham said:

“Today is an important milestone, with the much-awaited signing of the Tay Cities Deal, which will bring a £700 million package of stimulus for the Tayside area through an agreement between the Scottish & UK Governments, local councils and private investment.

“It is over two years since the Heads of Terms Agreement was signed and a few months later, the Scottish Government announced it would provide an additional £50m investment on transport, infrastructure and manufacturing projects. 

“Early last month, Infrastructure Secretary Michael Matheson told MSPs the Scottish Government has been ready to sign the Tay Cities Deal for a ‘considerable time’.

“Nevertheless, we are here now and the Cities Deal promises funding for some important projects in my constituency.

“I hope that with all the behind-the-scenes foot-dragging behind us, those projects will very soon see the colour of the money they have been promised.”
