Centralisation

Not enough to spread economic growth throughout the region.

Why the contribution is important

The objectives are too focused on delivering opportunities to the central borders of Galashiels and Tweebank.  There is little here that will deliver any economic growth to other parts of Borders such as Berwickshire and Roxburghshire.  If the Council is serious in spreading opportunity throughout the region, then it should locate the new CGI centre in Hawick.  This way, workers are much more likely to locate themselves here in the Borders and not commute down from Edinburgh.T
