June 13, 2018 at 6:00pm - 8pm

Join STP and town stakeholders for the next meeting of the Cross Party Group on Towns and Town Centres.

At this meeting of the Cross Party Group, we will be looking at innovative projects being developed to support the future of towns and town centres across Scotland. From the Town Centre Living project, supporting vibrancy in town centres through housing; to pilot projects designed to reduce a towns’ carbon footprint; and how using digital and related data management will benefit towns, consumers and stakeholders.
