Scotland Policy Conferences

Next steps for implementing the Glasgow City Region Deal

September 2018

This seminar will provide a timely opportunity to assess the progress of the Glasgow City Region Deal.

It follows publication of the Local Government and Communities Committee report ‘City Regions: Deal or No Deal?’, which raised questions around the focus and structure of City Region Deals in Scotland, particularly in terms of ensuring that economic growth is inclusive and delivers benefits across society.

Delegates will discuss progress in delivering key infrastructure projects agreed as part of the City Region Deal across areas such as transport, housing and commercial facilities - and their potential contribution to economic growth.

Further sessions focus on policy priorities for ensuring that growth is inclusive and delivers benefits across the social and regional spectrum. In particular attendees will discuss the role of employability and skills programmes being delivered as part of the City Region Deal, as well as opportunities for building local economic networks.

Price: £95 PLUS VAT

Shortly after every Scotland Policy Conferences seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our policymaker contacts in government, and to stakeholders more widely.

A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
