Regional Prosperity Framework - consultation

Partners across the region, including East Lothian Council, 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.

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 and housing to education and digital inclusion; to economic development and climate change.

The key themes of the Regional Prosperity Framework are to secure:

  • a FLOURISHING economy, environment and ecology, households and places
  • a RESILIENT workforce, climate responses, infrastructure and buildings
  • an INNOVATIVE Private Sector, Third Sector (including Further and 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.
