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.
The UK Government in its 2017 autumn budget statement promised to work with partners across the border work towards a Borderlands Inclusive Growth Deal. Since then our Partnership has met with both the UK and Scottish Governments to establish the details of this promise and what we are asking from it.
