Development & Housing

We are working to attract inward economic investment into Scotland’s towns, cities and communities that will deliver housing, improved public service delivery, enhanced connectivity and economic benefits.

Economic Investment

Working in partnership with the public and private sectors, we seek to create the right conditions to generate additional economic investment opportunities across Scotland.

Securing additional investment is achieved by generating the right environment for both the public and private sector to invest, ensuring economic and inclusive benefits are delivered and that Scotland remains a great place to invest.

We’ve achieved this through two key work streams; the Tax Incremental Financing (TIF) approach which we’ve spearheaded for a number of years, and more recently, by implementing the Growth Accelerator.

Both are used as levers to unlock future growth as well as securing benefits at a national, regional and local level. Across both these work streams, public sector investment of £300m is anticipated to unlock a further £2bn of private sector investment over a 10-year period.
