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 that calls this area home.
We continue to strategically invest in projects and infrastructure to elevate 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 and boosting the confidence of local people to ensure that they are equipped to take advantage of opportunities now and in the future.
Not only are we supporting our communities by developing their skills, we are creating more and better jobs to retain talent across the Borderlands region and attract new people to choose the Borderlands as their home.
We are investing in the infrastructure needed to support improvements in connectivity and helping people to access the region.
We are revitalising places across the Borderlands region by investing in improvements to attract people to live, work and visit.
