The final version of the City Region Deal for Edinburgh has now been signed. But what does it say?

We know that there will be £300 million from the UK Government and £300 million from the Scottish Government although there are those who say that there could have been £400 million if the UK Government had matched Holyrood’s budget.

Regional partners have also committed to investing up to £500 million which makes it a £1.1bn deal expected to generate over £5 bn of Gross Added Value over the same period.

These are the headlines :

  • £20 million for the new Concert Hall in St Andrew Square
  • 21,000 jobs
  • £300 million for world leading data innovation centres
  • £140 million for the A720 City Bypass
  • £25 million regional skills programme to support improved career opportunities for disadvantaged groups
  • £65 million for housing to unlock strategic development sites
