Active Consultations

Making Places InitiativeClosing Date for Design Grant application: 13th October 

The Scottish Government has launched 2017-18 Making Places initiative. This initiative has grown from the Charrette Mainstreaming programme and represents a broadening of SG support for community participation in the design of their local places. Grant funding remains available to support delivery of charrettes but is no longer confined to charrettes only. Proposals for other participative design events are equally welcome. In addition to the grant funding for community led design events, Making Places will also offer support in the form of advice and guidance from Architecture & Design Scotland and relevant partner bodies, to communities who wish to improve their understanding of place and build their skills and confidence. Full details on Making Places can be found here  Please e-mail architecture@gov.scot or call 0131 244 7
