Consultations - Help shape regional prosperity
Closing dateMonday 26 July
SummaryPartners across the region have been working hard to deliver on the Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region Deal that will bring £1.3 billion investment over 15 years. This partnership has helped us to develop a Regional Prosperity Framework, and it is on this document that we are reaching out to you for comments, feedback and ideas on what matters to you for our region.
Survey to complete
The Edinburgh and South East Scotland (ESES) region has an incredible platform to build on, but there are issues that we need to address to support our regional prosperity. These include: the response from Covid-19 and the need to address societal imbalances across the region and the urgent need to deliver this within a net zero emissions context.
The Regional Prosperity Framework is a draft plan to grow and recover our economy sustainably. It looks at everything from transport & housing to education & digital inclusion; to economic development & climate change. The Key Themes of the Regional Prosperity Framework are to secure:
• A FLOURISHING economy, environment & ecology, households & places
• A RESILIENT workforce, climate responses, infrastructure & buildings
• An INNOVATIVE Private Sector, Third Sector (including Further & Higher Education) and Public Sector.
This consultation is open to individuals, businesses and other organisations, professional bodies and charities. The Regional Prosperity Framework will inform future policy creation across many organisations – all aimed at ensuring the region is as resilient as possible, despite current challenges, and has the right infrastructure to be a key contributor to the economy of Scotland.

The Regional Prosperity Framework consultation will launch on Monday 14 June 2021 and the closing date for responses is 11:59pm on Monday 26 July 2021.
