Tay Cities Deal. Creating a Smarter and Fairer Region.

The Tay Cities Deal brings together public, private and voluntary organisations in the council areas of Angus, Dundee, Fife and Perth & Kinross to deliver a smarter and fairer region.

To do so the local authorities that make up the Tay Cities zone will negotiate with the UK and Scottish Governments to secure investment and greater local powers. This will be used to encourage skills development and progress infrastructure such as roads, rail links, buildings and communications networks.  

Under the deal business, higher and further education, local government and the Third Sector will work closely together to create growth more quickly and sustainably using the significant public investment to bring greater prosperity and equality.

The UK and Scottish Governments will be paid back over an agreed time period through increased business and tax receipts.
