    Hopes high for “transformational” Growth Deal

    Written by on January 15, 2020

    It’s been claimed a £235 million Growth Deal for Falkirk and Grangemouth would be “transformational” for the local area.

    Politicians and business leaders gathered in Polmont earlier to discuss the potential investment, which would come from both the UK and Scottish governments.

    It’s hoped up to 6,000 jobs could be created as a result.
