Changing economic circumstances, competition and patterns of service provision are challenging the role of town centres as sustainable places. Rethinking town centres as places to live is one possible future. But, how do we – working collaboratively – create town centres as living places that re-use existing spaces to deliver housing, opportunity and services in the right place for the most impact?
Architecture and Design Scotland, with Scottish Government and Angus Council, is hosting a practical learning event to address these issues. Join us at the PLACE CHALLENGE event on 28-29 October. Using Arbroath as a ‘learning place’ we will offer a two day collaborative learning experience focusing on how to deliver town centre living as a key part of making the ‘town centres first’ principle a reality.
