OurPlace.scot website launched
The new website OurPlace.scot was launched yesterday by the Scottish Government.
The website, developed by the Place Standard Partners: Scottish Government, Public Health Scotland, Architecture and Design Scotland, Glasgow City Council, and the Improvement Service, brings together resources to support place-based work – for individuals, communities, and professionals alike.
This includes case studies, tools and innovative examples to help shape investment and service decision making.
The Scottish Government said the aim was to create a central resource which promotes the benefits of place and place-based working.
“Place has an enormous influence on the quality of our lives and our impact on the environment,” it added. “We are confident the new site will help to make positive differences to communities in Scotland which in turn will help improve our health, our prosperity, our quality of life and protect our environment.”
