As a city region, we have always been ambitious, and successful in developing our city to meet the needs of our residents and businesses. We have an opportunity now to capitalise on the award of city status to take Perth City and surrounding area forward into the 21st century and beyond.

Perth City Development Board (PCDB) was formed to help support growth of the city and surrounding region with input from both the public and private sector. The Board has been working hard to develop a vision for the growth of the city and how that could be achieved through the public and private sector working together through a revised version of  the Perth City Plan - Smart growth for Perth City: Perth City Plan 2015-2035. To view the plan please click on the link below.

On the back of the Perth City Plan, we are investing £14 million to create a series of vibrant, high quality public spaces and lighting initiatives across Perth City and the wider city region. The £9m Placemaking budget will raise the standard of public realm in the City Centre, creating a series of exciting gateways and spaces which prioritise the pedestrian; promotes the cultural heritage and natural assets, such as the River Tay and Inches.

The £5m Lighting Plan budget follows on from the creation of the Lighting Action Plan, which outlines a series of unique lighting projects, which when combined, will promote Perth’s unique cultural heritage and architecture, as well as public realm and greenspace. Together, this investment will reinforce Perth’s status as a young, vibrant, cultural city, which has plenty to offer throughout the day and evening.
