Stalled Spaces Scotland is a national programme commissioned by the Scottish Government and delivered by Architecture and Design Scotland (A+DS) to facilitate the temporary use of under-used green spaces, stalled development sites or vacant and derelict land throughout Scotland.
Through this programme A+DS aims to support local authorities to develop their own initiatives, using the knowledge and learning from the award winning Stalled Spaces initiative developed by Glasgow City Council. This supports community groups to create temporary activity on under used open spaces in their area. Local authorities throughout Scotland have the opportunity to bid for a small fund to help kick start the project and will also have access to a package of seminars and workshops to support them and the communities in their area to realise their plans.
The successful local authorities were announced at the Stalled Spaces Scotland seminar on 3rd December 2014. They are Angus, Argyll and Bute, East Dunbartonshire, East Renfrewshire, Fife, North Ayrshire and Renfrewshire councils. The projects and funding for communities through the awarded local authorities will be available from April 2015.
