Workshop series to help promote local living

A series of workshops are being held across Scotland to help support ideas around local living in towns.

Organised and delivered by Scotland’s Towns Partnership, Scottish Futures Trust, Architecture and Design Scotland and Scottish Land Commission, the workshops will provide a platform to highlight a series of live case studies and explore new opportunities to promote the local living agenda in towns and town centres.

There will be opportunity for developing Town Centre Living projects to share their proposal, obtain practical advice and best practice from key agencies, organisations and stakeholders, while the key themes from the discussion will be shared back to COSLA and the Scottish Government.

These workshops are open to any community group, public, private or third sector organisation which has have a view on improving and developing the local living agenda.

The first event will take place in Perth on 15th February and will look at how to re-think, re-imagine, re-purpose empty assets with a community focus, followed by a session in Paisley on 22nd February discussing attraction and enablement of town centre living investment from the private sector.

An online workshop on 29th February will focus on rural and islands town centre living. The Inverness workshop on 7th March will look at adopting a holistic and strategic place making approach, followed by a session on 22nd March in Falkirk on town centre living regeneration.
