The Levelling Up White paper set out a broad, deep and long-term programme to transform places and boost local growth right across the UK. Kirstin Marsh, the Area Lead for Tay Cities & NE Scotland from the UK Government’s Cities & Local Growth Unit, will provide an overview of what the Levelling Up agenda might mean in Scotland and the Tay Cities region in particular.

After a short introduction to cover the data and thinking that underpins the policy priorities, the approach to delivery and the key funding streams, she will briefly discuss challenges and opportunities for the Tay Cities region. There will be time for general questions, ideas from the audience and discussion about how the UK Government can strengthen links with the private sector to deliver Levelling Up.
