With our eclectic mix of speakers this is sure to be a lively and interesting event, which will look at some of the Scotland’s great places as well as the people that have made their mark on the way that planning is done today.
As part of the 2014 Centenary celebrations, RTPI Scotland has asked people and organisations across Scotland to identify what they think are Scotland’s Best Places. On the evening, there will be a display of the shortlisted locations including the three winners, as selected by public vote and announced in June.
This is a free event as part of the Doors Open Day Built Heritage Festival.
Refreshments will be provided.
