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.
This is a very exciting period for our area, as the City Region Deal offers us the chance to unlock our full potential!
Later, Lord Duncan attended a meeting with Scottish Conservative and Unionist elected members Dean Lockhart MSP, Alexander Stewart MSP, Cllr Neil Benny, and Cllr Bill Mason
The meeting was arranged to discuss the Stirling & Clackmannanshire City Region Deal, which promises to move millions of pounds in investment into the area. This investment will pay for projects such as the National Tartan Centre and the Institute of Aquaculture at the University of Stirling.
All agreed that the deal is ready to go!
