People and places are our greatest assets. We continue to shape the future of our communities by investing in growth sectors and modernising our region.
A sustainable future for our residents
More than one million people live in the Borderlands region and we are committed to ensuring our Inclusive Growth Deal provides lasting benefits for everyone.
We continue to strategically invest in projects and infrastructure to provide opportunities for people and places, including:
Improvements to transport links
Faster, more reliable broadband connections
Investing in towns across the region to improve our places
We also recognise the importance of upskilling to ensure that people are equipped to take advantage of opportunities now and in the future.
Not only are we supporting our communities by developing skills, our projects will create and lead to more and better jobs to retain talent across the Borderlands region and attract new people to choose the Borderlands as their home.
Four strategic themes act as guiding principles across all of our projects and investments.
