Get involved

We want to hear your views on our draft strategy, and on what needs to be done to make the South of Scotland economy stronger, fairer for all and more sustainable

Draft Regional Economic Strategy 

Between February and March, significant engagement took place with those who live, work, and operate across the South via themed discussions, direct interviews, surveys, and online drop-in sessions to help shape the strategy. Almost 1000 people contributed their thoughts.  Thank you to everyone who took the time to take part in this. 

Your feedback has allowed us to bring together information into a draft strategy and to make it available for public consultation ahead of being finalised which is planned for September.

We have also produced an 'Easy Read' version of the Strategy, to help a wide range of people to understand what we are consulting on. ( Icon for pdf SOS RES Easy Read Final [1.2MB] )

This is a further opportunity to give us your views, and to check with you whether the strategy we have developed is right.
