‘There goes the neighbourhood’ – Neighbourhood Summit
November 22 @ 12:00 pm - November 23 @ 5:30 pm
There goes the neighbourhood
AoU Scotland Neighbourhood Summit
As part of Scotland’s Towns Week, the Academy and its partners are holding a one-and-a-half day event focusing on changing neighbourhoods, following the success of the 2016 event Streets Beyond – Beyond Streets.
Drawing from national and international examples, including contributions from some of the Academy’s Great Neighbourhoods finalists, the aim is to explore the physical, social and economic attributes that make for successful neighbourhoods. Using lessons from successful ‘established’ neighbourhoods, we aim to identify factors that can help regenerate existing neighbourhoods and making new neighbourhoods and estates more ‘liveable’.
