A string of projects located in north-east Fife form part of the Tay Cities Deal submission for £1.83 billion of investment.
A key component is further development of the University of St Andrews’ Eden Campus, in Guardbridge, which it is intended will become an innovation centre for up to 130 start-up businesses.
They also include improvements in road and rail infrastructure and new marine tourism facilities.
Elements located in the kingdom were mapped out to councillors during an update on the bid which it is hoped will bring up to 15,000 jobs to Dundee, Angus, Perth and Kinross and north east Fife over the next 20 years.
They include new pontoons in St Andrews and Tayport and moorings in Newburgh as part of the wider Tay Adventures project.
It is hoped an options appraisal, feasibility and design work will be funded for improvements to the A92 between the Tay Road Bridge and Preston roundabout, at Glenrothes.
Feasibility studies are intended to be reviewed or updated for rail halts at Newburgh or Oudenarde, near Perth, and elsewhere and for a rail link at St Andrews.
Funding is also sought for the link road and bypass for the St Andrews West and Cupar North strategic expansions to “unlock development”.
The ABC Smart Ticketing system, in which tickets can be used on buses by any operator, will be extended south of the Tay and the area will benefit from business support including a shared apprenticeship scheme.
Fife Council senior manager Gordon Mole said: “The Tay Cities ambition is to ensure that the economic region plays its part in ensuring Scotland meets its ambitions to be a country with an international outlook and where growth is based on innovation and new ways of doing things better.
“At the core of this strategy is a will to ensure that everyone who lives in the Tay Cities region benefits, and that no one who is able to participate is left behind.
“Fife and regional projects form part of the submission for the Tay Cities Deal. However, projects will need to be assessed and prioritised as business cases for these proposals develop.
“This is to ensure a fit with a strong regional proposition that meets the ambitions for greater employment and GVA growth, and the investment priorities for the UK and Scottish governments.”
