The publication is offered as guidance for the central and local government custodians of our town centres on an approach to achieving a co-ordinated vision that re-connects whole communities to their reinvigorated and vibrant town centres.
In the foreward of the report, Phil Prentice, Chief Officer of Scotland's Towns Partnership, states: Scotland’s Towns Partnership welcomes this blueprint which we hope can be deployed across many Scottish towns and city centres. The town centre issue is complex and often it is the sheer scale, pace of change and complexity that stifles progress. This report shows how leadership, engagement, evidence gathering, innovative thinking and collaboration can support investment in town and neighbourhood centres so that they can become more diverse, sustainable and thriving places".
The report can be read here or via the 'Towns Library' page of the STP website.
