A sustainable and inclusive future for the Borderlands


The Borderlands Partnership exists to unlock the potential for sustainable and inclusive economic growth across the South of Scotland and North of England - your Borderlands.

How your Borderlands is making a difference for you

Whether you live here, work here or are planning to visit, the Borderlands region is a unique area equally steeped in heritage and ambition.

The potential to grow and capitalise on numerous unique assets is already empowering the Borderlands area to leverage opportunities to underpin existing industries, whilst prioritising emerging growth sectors.

We have a shared ambition for the Borderlands to reach its potential for everyone, delivering green growth and attracting new businesses and investment. We will improve our connectivity, deliver skills and innovation, and improve our places to support their longer-term resilience. We will attract new residents and welcome more visitors to enjoy the beautiful natural environment of our vibrant, inclusive region.
