Exciting times ahead for Perth and Kinross

Leader of Perth & Kinross Council, Councillor Ian Campbell has highlighted the progress being made on major projects contributing to the future cultural and economic development of Perth and Kinross.

Councillor Campbell said: "I recently met with the Scottish Government's Cabinet Secretary for the Economy; Jobs and Fair Work, Keith Brown MSP here in the Fair City, where we discussed a number of key initiatives.

The Cabinet Secretary visited Perth City Hall with me to find out more about the ambitious plans we are taking forward to transform the building into a new visual arts attraction, and we also saw first hand the multi-million pound revamp of Perth Theatre, which has now reached completion.

We also spoke on the progress of the Tay Cities Deal, within which there are a range of projects that reflect the cultural and economic ambitions of Perth and Kinross, as well as our partners in Dundee, Angus and Fife. There are exciting times ahead for Perth and Kinross and its communities and I am very pleased to have shared that at a national level."
