Town Centre Toolkit

The Town Centre Toolkit, a key commitment in the Town Centre Action Plan and Creating Places was launched on 15 April 2015,  by Alex Neil Cabinet Secretary for Social Justice, Communities and Pensioners’ Rights.

This new online toolkit will give communities information and advice on how they can make their town centres more attractive, active and accessible.

Professor Leigh Sparks, Chair of  Scotland’s Towns Partnership said: "This open access toolkit is both informative and inspirational. It will provoke ideas and creativity which should ultimately lead to a higher quality of design and sustainable placemaking. Building the document under clear themes and illustrating it with great examples clearly shows what can be achieved through better planning and design.

The toolkit is available on Scotland’s Towns Partnership’s website:
