The next Cross Party Group will take place on Wednesday 7th December from 12.45 – 13.45.
The purpose of the CPG is to analyse policy prescriptions and develop ideas and innovations. This, in turn, will help Scotland’s towns and town centres through the current economic climate to emerge stronger, smarter, cleaner, healthier, and greener.
The December meeting will focus on the theme of ‘Accessible Towns’ and will invite a range of expert speakers from across related sectors to provide information and discussion on accessibility, inclusivity and how we can ensure that Scotland’s towns and town centres are places that work and can be enjoyed by all.
Please note this meeting will take place online. Please register here.
