An ambitious approach to cross border working.
The Borderlands Partnership has been established to unlock the potential for sustainable and inclusive economic growth across the South of Scotland and North of England.
The Borderlands Partnership brings together the five cross-border local authorities of Carlisle City Council, Cumbria County Council, Dumfries and Galloway Council, Northumberland County Council and Scottish Borders Council to promote the economic growth of the area that straddles the Scotland-England border.
We are working together to focus on ways to make the area more attractive to investors, visitors and those who may wish to come and live here.
Our shared ambition is to play our full part in the Scottish and wider UK economy.
Following the submission of a Borderlands Inclusive Growth Deal proposal to the UK and Scottish Governments in September 2018, a Heads of Terms was signed with the UK and Scottish Governments on Monday 1 July 2019. The full Heads of Terms document is available to download here
