The Glasgow City Region City Deal

The Glasgow City Region City Deal

Eight neighbouring local authorities across Glasgow and the Clyde Valley have secured the second largest City Deal in the UK. 

The £1.13 billion Glasgow City Region City Deal will fund major infrastructure projects; create thousands of new jobs and assist thousands of unemployed people back to work; improve public transport and connectivity; drive business innovation and growth and generate billions of pounds of private sector investment. 

Over its lifetime the City Deal will:

  • Support an overall increase in the economy of around 29,000 jobs.
  • Work with 19,000 unemployed residents and support over 5,500 back into sustained work.
  • Secure £1 billion of Scottish and UK Government capital funding.
  • Lever in an estimated £3.3 billion of private sector investment.
  • Deliver £2.2 billion in additional Gross Value Added (GVA) per annum (a 4% uplift) across the city region.
  • Spread the benefits of economic growth across the whole Region, ensuring deprived areas benefit.
