Future Town Centres

A Central Scotland Chapter event and AGM

Tuesday, 14 May 2013 at 6:00PM - 9:00PM
Falkirk '3Space', 43- 45 High Street, Falkirk FK1 1ES, UK
RTPI Scotland

The Scottish Government is undertaking a national review of town centres to "scope out potential solutions to the issues faced by Scotland’s town centres and to enable a measured, long-term approach to town centre regeneration by targeting these issues". To bring together ideas on town centres, the Government established the Town Centre Review External Advisory Group which is due to report to Ministers at the end of April 2013.

The RTPI’s representative on the Advisory Group is Nick Wright who has very kindly agreed to speak to our Chapter on 14 May, providing a timely opportunity for you to come and hear about the ideas emerging through the Review.

Providing some local context on Falkirk town centre, two additional speakers have also kindly agreed to address the meeting. As something of a pioneer in town centre management, Alastair Mitchell (Falkirk Delivers) has a long involvement with Falkirk town centre and Richard Broadley (Falkirk Council Planning and Environment Unit) has been involved in developing the proposed Falkirk Town Centre Townscape Heritage Initiative and securing associated funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic Scotland.

To complete the event, we hope that many of you will join us to consider and discuss the future of town centres in Scotland and find out about initiatives underway in Falkirk.

The event will conclude with a Chapter AGM with the aim of completing business before 9pm.
