New Place Guide launched

Living well locally is a key ambition of the Programme for Government.  Building the conditions to live well locally is about taking a place-based approach to needs, services and investment opportunities.

Over the past number of months, we've been working with local authorities, public bodies and communities across Scotland to deliver impact by taking a place-based approach.

Our new ‘Place Guide’ builds on this shared learning. It is a practical, step-by-step approach to implementing the place agenda collaboratively.

An easy to read eight-step summary of the Guide is available here supported by this briefing paper here.   

We hope you find the Guide useful and helpful.

We would be delighted to hear about your experiences of place-based working, and how we can support you.
