Designed to support communities, public, private and third sectors, to work efficiently together, the Place Standard provides a framework to assess the quality of a place.

A new online learning resource on how to use the Place Standard has been launched by NHS Health Scotland, the Scottish Government and Architecture and Design Scotland. The aim of the learning resource is to enable users through the use of tools and templates to understand and practically apply the Place Standard Tool. Access the learning resource here

Up-to-date case studies on the Place Standard can also be viewed on Architecture & Design Scotand's dedicated webpage hereThey illustrate how the Place Standard tool has been used in a variety of ways and at a range of scales to inform spatial planning community planning, design and development.
