A policy on architecture and place-making for Scotland: public consultation 2012

Date: 8th June 2012

The Scottish Government is consulting on how Scotland's architecture and places can help provide a better quality of life and better position Scotland on the world stage. Consultation to 7 September 2012.

As a starting point for discussion, the consultation document identifies 4 key themes around which the policy on architecture and placemaking could contribute to the future shape of Scotland:

1. Supporting sustainable economic growth

2. Shaping Scotland's future

3. Embedding built environment design into wider policy agendas and ensuring public and private sector buy-in

4. Recognising the cultural value of architecture, urbanism and heritage

The consultation document briefly elaborates each of these themes and sets out a number of related questions on which the Scottish Government welcomes the views of all interested in contributing. The Scottish Government would also like to have comment on broader aspects of these issues and on any other areas that have not been specifically identified in the document.
