In June 2020, the Cabinet Secretary for Communities and Local Government announced a review of the Town Centre Action Plan which was launched in 2013. The review will be undertaken by an expert review group chaired by Professor Leigh Sparks Chair of Scotland’s Towns Partnership and Deputy Principal and Professor of Retail Studies at the University Stirling.
Other members of the group include COSLA, the Royal Town Planning Institute, South of Scotland Enterprise, the Carnegie Trust, the Federation of Small Businesses, Public Health Scotland, Sustrans, Inclusion Scotland, the Development Trusts Association Scotland and the Scottish Government. The Review will include a range of consultation exercises with the general public and other stakeholders and report later in the year. You can read more about the announcement here.
