A Scottish Government press release states:
"A new online toolkit will give communities information and advice on how they can make their town centres more attractive, active and accessible.
The Town Centre Toolkit has been developed as one of the key actions from the Town Centre Action Plan, a plan which sets out measures to revitalise Scotland’s town centres.
Using case studies for inspiration, the toolkit is designed to give everyone the opportunity to be involved in making improvements to their local area and offers guidance on how to make best use of the assets already in place." More from the Scottish Government here.
Here in Nairn we certainly have gone round the course a few times with consultations and charretttes etc, when it comes to the town centre, with ongoing efforts still on the boil. Perhaps this new online facility might be of some use to those many serious students of town centre matters and, more importantly, to those actively engaged in trying to improve the town centre.
At first glance the Town Centre Toolkit site looks very user friendly. Perhaps any gurnites with a bit of spare time over the next day or two might wish to have browse and share their thoughts on any potential help or inspiration it could provide to us here?
