S5W-13655: Willie Rennie (North East Fife)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 4 January 2018

To ask the Scottish Government whether it will consider using the £20 million it has committed for Cupar North Development in the Tay Cities Deal plan to support alternative proposals in north east Fife.

Answered by: Keith Brown 30 January 2018

The Scottish Government is committed to securing a City Region Deal for the Tay Cities as soon as possible, and we are currently considering all proposals and fully exploring all financing and funding options. A proposal to accelerate the Cupar Northern Bypass project is one of those put forward by the Tay Cities, but it is not possible, at this stage, for me to confirm details of which projects may or may not be included as part of the final deal.
