The development of a Place Standard is being led by a partnership that includes Scottish Government, NHS and Architecture + Design Scotland. It is a commitment arising from the Creating Places policy statement and also as a key recommendation of Good Places Better Health to develop a Scottish Neighbourhood Quality Standard to improve health and tackle health inequalities through action on place.
The principal funcion of the Place Standard is to support communities, public and private sectors to work together to deliver high quality, sustainable places that maximise the potential of the physical and social environment in supporting health, wellbeing and a high quality of life. It will do this by engaging stakeholders in articulating and promoting what makes a good, sustainable place and settig a framework for processes which deliver places of high quality.
This event will inform the testing and feedback of the draft Place Standard, which is intended to be launched in autumn 2015.
This event will be an interactive workshop led by Eric Dawson. (Eric is on secondment with PAS from A+DS.)
Venue to be confirmed.
