The UK Autumn Statement on 23 November 2016 saw Stirling’s City Deal announced by the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
Caledonian Economics supported the Council, alongside Turner and Townsend, in developing their City Deal programme. The components of the City Deal plan include:
- a Digital District founded on Smart Cities principles ;
- further developments on the River Forth as a leisure and tourism resource;
- a new Civic and Harbour quarter; and,
- plans for a City Park in the shadow of Stirling Castle.
The Caledonian Economics team worked closely with colleagues at Turner and Townsend and the Council to develop the economic impact assessment for each of the projects.
