The wider City Region

I posted a few months ago about a 'City Region' event which I spoke at --- a few further details can also be found here ...

... at that event back in April, I committed to try and convene a meeting of all six 'City Region' Leaderships before the start of the July recess.

Well, I've just about managed it - West Lothian couldn't physically make it along (but were there in spirit!) as "Edinburgh, East Lothian, Midlothian, Fife and the Borders" Council Leaderships all met in Edinburgh City Chambers.

There ensued a really interesting, and wide-ranging discussion on areas wherein we could potentially cooperate - and there was broad agreement on an initial programme.

More detail to follow in the coming week.
