The UK Government continues to press ahead with discussions with the Tay City partners and I can confirm that further talks took place at the end of August.

Local partners have put forward a large number of proposals, and the next step is to scrutinise these proposals rigorously to identify together which can deliver transformational change for the economy of the Tay Cities region.
