Dundee Backs Glasgow Channel 4 Bid30/04/18
The UK's only UNESCO City of Design has backed ambitious proposals for Glasgow to become the new HQ and creative hub for Channel 4.
Dundee City Council leader Councillor John Alexander said: “Like Dundee, Glasgow continues to seek new opportunities and to offer an exciting, viable and dynamic alternative to London.
“Success in attracting the headquarters would provide additional benefits across Scotland, especially for our own region. Glasgow has a wealth of talent, a track record of delivering success and continues to provide an important gateway to wider Scotland.
"I hope that if successful, the creative talents and skills based here in Dundee would have a direct relationship with Channel 4 and they could support the organisation to explore further opportunities for collaboration in the future.
“I am very happy to back Glasgow and will offer all the support we can give.”
