Tax Incremental Finance
Falkirk Council's £67 million Tax Incremental Financing (TIF) scheme is expected to bring in £413 million in private investment into the area, creating almost 6,000 jobs and hundreds of apprenticeships.
Under TIF, councils fund improvements by borrowing against future business rates income that should be created by the regeneration and development.
The 25 year TIF plan has three phases across Falkirk and Grangemouth. Under the plan, links from the M9 motorway to industrial areas will be improved and 400,000 square metres of business space will be made available.
