WE are ramping up our coverage of Scotland’s green freeports.

Inverness and Cromarty Firth Green Freeport and Forth Green Freeport were jointly selected by the Scottish and UK governments at the start of 2023. They have since been supported by start-up funding and benefited from tax reliefs and other incentives through a combination of devolved and reserved powers – all in an effort to stimulate economic growth.

But we are also aware there are serious concerns, from whether this is simply a Westminster power grab to there being too little public awareness of the impact of these freeports on local communities.

We’d like to hear from you, our readers, about what you’d like to see in our coverage.

What topics would you like us to explore? What questions or concerns do you have about these green freeports?
