RTPI Scotland Annual Conference

Athletes VillageChanging Places - Collaborating to make a difference

1 October 2019, The Emirates Arena, Glasgow

The new Planning Act, the Place Principle, the Place Standard and community planning show that public policy and planning practice in Scotland is aiming to become more place-focused and collaborative. Given this, the conference took a detailed look at how place-based approaches are being undertaken, how they are impacting on the ground, how they are coordinated and delivered and how stakeholders have been engaged in their development. Issues explored included economic growth, design, regeneration, health, travel and infrastructure. The conference took a granular approach to explore in detail how this is being developed in Glasgow, and especially in the East End through presentations and walking tours. The event also explored place-based, collaborative approaches being taken forward in a range of settings across the UK and Ireland.
