Leader of Perth & Kinross Council – Councillor Murray Lyle
“Perth continues to grow as a city and the demand for development land is expanding with it, in both the residential and industrial/business sectors. Embedded in our Tay Cities regional economic strategy, the possibilities that present themselves at Perth Eco Innovation Park, have been unlocked through our investment in phase 1 of the Perth Transport Futures Project, which significantly improves road infrastructure in the area. The business park is at the heart of the Scottish road network making it ideal for smart logistics development coupled with investment in clean energy and innovation technologies for urban living, at a time when the city is very much ‘open for business’ and focused on moving forward into the future.”
Perth continues to focus on becoming one of Europe’s great small cities and demand for development land is growing in both the residential and industrial/commercial sectors.
The city and the wider region is home to several corporate headquarters, including energy giant SSE, Aviva, Stagecoach and Highland Spring. Perth is a place focused on growth, with generous allocations of housing and employment land, a strong heritage, and a bright future across a number of key industries and sectors including food and drink, tourism, clean growth technology, construction and financial services.
With access to four world class universities regionally, Perth is a place of learning and innovation. The largest campus of the University of the Highlands and Islands is in the city.
Investing and locating in Perth makes competitive sense taking advantage of its highly connected location, skilled workforce, strong business support network, competitive land values and an excellent quality of life.
So, it’s not surprising that Perth is fast becoming the first-choice destination for national and international companies focused on growing their business in the heart of Scotland.
