Secretary of State for Scotland gets insight into the Moray Growth Deal bid
The potential for Moray to invigorate its economy and create scores of jobs and opportunities came closer with a visit by the Secretary of State for Scotland on 5th April 2018.
David Mundell, Secretary of State for Scotland, was invited by Moray MP Douglas Ross to hear the details behind the £200million Moray Growth Deal bid. Industry chiefs, council leaders and senior Moray Council and Highland and Islands Enterprise officials spent over an hour setting out the plans and details of the ambitious bid for government funding.
Unanimous public support for Moray Growth Deal
Moray residents have had their say on the development of the Moray Growth Deal – and they like it.
The growth bid is a government-backed regional deal designed to boost economic growth across Moray.
Part of the process of attracting government support is to demonstrate residents are behind the bid. To gauge this support the ‘My Moray’ campaign was launched in July
This included a dedicated website, attendance at local events, briefings to community groups, engagement with the local business community, specific workshops at Moray College and the My Moray social media campaign.
All this activity has resulted in 1,200 responses to an online survey to ascertain the wants and needs of Moray locals and its business community. The survey showed an 83 per cent approval rating for the deal, with the top areas people wanted to see improvement listed as jobs, education, leisure/recreation and business growth.
The completed surveys will be analysed and reflected in a report to Moray Council and form the basis of further discussions with the Scottish and UK Governments.
