10 years after a previous attempt to gain CITY status for Dumfries in south west Scotland a new bid is being considered.
Council Leader Elaine Murray said “When I received the Minister of State at the Cabinet Office, Lord True’s letter I recognised the potential for Dumfries to bid for city status, and asked senior officers to consider how to take this forward.
“I was pleased to learn from some of our parliamentarians that they would be supportive, and look forward to developing proposals in partnership with other stakeholders. At this expression of interest stage, we are looking at what an application would mean for Dumfries and the region.”
