boost local economy

What is the CX Project?

The CX Project was launched in 2011 with funding from the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority Socio-Economic Fund and Dumfries and Galloway Council to provide area-specific and intensified business support, aimed at start up and existing businesses, to boost the local economy in the Annandale and Eskdale area of Dumfries & Galloway.

The object is to mitigate the impact of the de-commissioning at Chapelcross Nuclear Power Station and regenerate the wider community of Annandale and Eskdale. As 80% of the workforce live within 9 miles of the site and 97% within 20 miles, it became clear that a large proportion of the 30 million payroll currently flows into the local economy each year.
