NOTICE OF MOTION UNDER STANDING ORDER 13

Moved by Councillor Aileen Morton, seconded by Councillor Gary Mulvaney.

 

Argyll and Bute Council has been working with public and private sector partners for over three years now to develop our Rural Growth Deal proposals. On Wednesday 2nd October we received confirmation that a total of £50million will be available from the UK and Scottish Governments to support transformational projects across Argyll and Bute, delivering economic growth over the next ten years.

 

The Council:

 

·         Welcomes the commitment to our area, our communities and our businesses which will allow us to make the most of our outstanding natural resources.

 

·         Agrees that reaching the Heads of Terms stage is an absolute priority to bring clarity on how our growth deal will move forward.

 

·         Thanks all of our public and private sector partners for their support.

 

·         Acknowledges the efforts of officers across the Council who worked to pull our proposals together, with particular thanks to the Economic Growth officers who had direct responsibility: Fergus Murray, Moya Ingram, Jonathan Welch.

 

·         Notes that we will continue to work with partners and both governments to identify additional opportunities to address the key challenges we face such as connectivity and depopulation.
