The Glasgow City Region City Deal

£172.5m investment for North Lanarkshire

Glasgow City Region City Deal is an agreement between the UK Government, the Scottish Government and eight local authorities, including North Lanarkshire.

It has set up a £1.13 billion Infrastructure Fund to create economic growth by improving transport and regenerating or developing sites over the next 20 years.

Through the Infrastructure Fund, £172.5 million will be invested across North Lanarkshire in three core projects:

The Innovation and Growth Fund has invested £1 million in the MediCity Scotland facility based at Euro Central Business Park.

Through the Skills and Employment Fund we are involved in labour market projects to help address local employment challenges.

The key aims of City Deal are to:

  • Support growth in the life sciences by establishing world class research and development facilities
  • Support business innovation by helping small and medium enterprises to grow and develop
  • Deal with unemployment by setting up programmes to support unemployed people and look to the incomes of people on low wages.
