Stirling City Region Deal

Since my election, I have been lobbying in Westminster to ensure that the funds are made available for the Stirling City Region Deal. This has included bringing ministers such as then First Secretary of State Damian Green, Defence Minister Gavin Williamson, and Digital Minister Matt Hancock to Stirling to show them what the money could do to rejuvenate the City of Stirling and the wider area.

The matter remains a priority for me, and i'll will continue to work into the new year to ensure the funds come to Stirling.

UPDATE: After Chancellor Philip Hammond committed to City Region Deal funding in his Winter Budget, a further meeting with the Chancellor prompted further action; All parties are now working towards the heads of terms being signed at the beginning of 2018.


Welcoming Lord Duncan to Stirling

Very glad that Stirling was able to host the Scotland Office's Lord Ian Duncan before the Heads of Terms of the City Region Deal are signed, to show him what we'll be offering after the Deal is completed. He was very impressed by the plans, and the tour of our city.
