Join MSPs, STP and town stakeholders for the next meeting of the Cross Party Group on Towns and Town Centres. This meeting of the Cross Party Group will be on the topic of “Town Centres Beyond Retail”.
With the help of expert speakers, we will examine the purpose of Town Centres, before further discussing town centre living, housing and the role of retail and shopping centres in our towns today. The session will aim to outline how Town Centres can continue to make the most of retail spaces while also moving beyond this focus to become multifunctional places.
Please email Alison Jones [email protected] if you have any questions.
