Borderlands investment deal set to be signed – BBC, 17/03/21

A multi-million pound investment plan for southern Scotland and northern England is set to be officially agreed.

The Scottish and UK governments have confirmed £350m towards the Borderlands growth deal.

Dumfries and Galloway, Scottish Borders, Northumberland, Cumbria and Carlisle City councils and other local partners will add in more than £100m.

They are carrying out an online signing of the deal which it is hoped can deliver more than 5,000 jobs.
