Motion text

That this House supports plans being drawn up to build a major new international games design studio in the heart of Dundee's £1 billion Waterfront development, which would combine digital facilities with on-site accommodation to provide games designers with a fully immersive live-in experience; and notes that the studio, which would be funded by a private sector developer as well as the Tay Cities Deal, is estimated to contribute around £70 million to the local economy over 10 years and become a major attraction in its own right, enhancing Dundee's reputation as an international games design hub and would also attract creative talent to Dundee from around the UK and internationally.
