SP Energy Networks said: “Our congratulations go to all of the ﬁnalists. We are proud to be part of the Herald Property Awards which help celebrate the very best of the property sector.”
Phil Prentice, Chief Ofﬁcer at Scotland’s Towns Partnership said: “Scotland has been recognised recently as the most beautiful country in the world and it’s in the top 10 bucket list for Rough Guide’s global must-visit places.
“This little country invented much of the modern world and towns like Paisley, Kilmarnock and Dundee were global giants. But things move on and we are now seeking to regenerate and repurpose our post-industrial towns and cities across the country making them ﬁt for 21st century citizens. The Herald Property Awards help us to showcase the best examples of this journey.
“At Scotland’s Towns Partnership we are happy to be part of this fascinating story of reinvention.”
