Scotland’s Towns Partnership and Keep Scotland Beautiful have come together to launch the first ever Scotland’s Most Beautiful High Street competition.

Our high streets and town centres are the beating hearts of communities and local economies. Now, together with the Sunday Herald, we want to celebrate the contribution of our High Streets and recognise the efforts made to make these spaces clean, attractive, accessible, vibrant and inclusive for all to enjoy.

The competition is being launched in the Sunday Herald as part of the Scotland’s Towns series, and encourages local authorities, business improvement districts, development trusts, community councils and any other local organisation to submit their entry to Scotland’s Most Beautiful High Street.

To enter, simply send in a document (Word or PDF) consisting of one or two quality images and a short description (300 words max) of why your High Street deserves the award. The competition takes a broad understanding of “beautiful”, and we are keen to know what it is about your High Street which makes it special: the inclusion of green space or green infrastructure, cleanliness, shop front presentation, heritage and architecture, innovative features, or something else?

Following the launch date on Sunday 28 May, we will accept applications up until 5pm, Friday 30 June 2017.

STP and KSB will then shortlist entries, and a subsequent public vote to decide the winner will be held, hosted at The winning entry will be announced at Scotland’s Towns Partnership’s Annual Conference in Paisley, on 21 November 2017.
