'Once In A Generation' Chance For South Of Scotland Economy

A council is being urged to strongly support a "once in a generation" chance to boost the south of Scotland economy.

The Scottish government announced plans to create a new enterprise agency for the area earlier this year.

Interim arrangements will be put in place by the end of this year ahead of it becoming fully operational in 2020.

A report to Scottish Borders Council has advised its executive committee to recognise the "positive potential" the move has for the region.

It said the project could improve the level of investment in economic growth, enterprise, skills and innovation across the south of Scotland.
