Two new Scottish Government funds have been bought to our attention:

These funds will support communities wishing to participate in and lead design events, such as community workshops and charrettes. The funds particularly encourage applications from groups that can support the development of local place plans.  Our organisation, PAS, can help you with your submission and with delivery.

PAS is a volunteer-led, charitable organisation, providing skills training and support for community groups, planners, elected members and public bodies, as well as to seldom-heard groups who often cannot readily engage in the planning system. In particular, they support community organisations to develop and deliver their own aspirations for place through local place plans.  Their Advice Service offers free, impartial and confidential planning advice and our website holds a series of free planning information sheets.

For more information on how PAS can work with you to deliver a local place plan or community engagement event please contact Chris Sillick (PAS Projects Officer) or Julia Frost (
