The Town Centre Action Plan – One Year On report is a snapshot of the progress made by the Scottish Government and its partners in the 12 months following publication of the Town Centre Action Plan in November 2013.
The Action Plan identified the town centre first principle as a way of encouraging and delivering town centre regeneration.
The principle requests that:
“Government, local authorities, the wider public sector, businesses and communities put the health of town centres at
the heart of proportionate and best value decision making, seeking to deliver the best local outcomes regarding
investment and de-investment decisions, alignment of policies, targeting of available resources to priority town
centre sites, and encouraging vibrancy, equality and diversity.”
