Ayrshire Growth Deal
The Ayrshire Growth Deal is a partnership being driven forward by the Scottish Government, the UK Government and East, North and South Ayrshire Councils.
The Deal presents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform the economic prospects of the area and with confirmed funding now in place, work is getting underway.
The ambitions and projects detailed here form the foundation of our long-term plans to attract new businesses, support existing companies to expand, create more jobs and bring new opportunities to the area - all of which will benefit people and places right across Ayrshire.
Thanks to confirmed investment from both the UK and Scottish Governments - of £103 million each - with further funding of £45.5 million from the three Ayrshire Councils, Ayrshire now has the opportunity to realise the area's potential and become a world-class business region for the aerospace and space, energy, marine, manufacturing and tourism industries.
This investment is expected to unlock private investment of around £300 million and deliver around 7,000 new jobs across a wide range of sectors, transforming the local economy for the benefit of all our people and places.
