The need to create people-centred, distinctive, quality environments is clearly supported by National Planning Policies. With this support we now have a huge opportunity to conceive and build urban settings and places that more fairly respond to the needs and aspirations of developer and community alike. The crucial step has been the focus, first and foremost, on the 'pedestrian' which has released the potential to transform our built settings.

Several projects which exemplify our approach to community-led frameworks include Milngavie Town Centre, Bishopbriggs Town Centre and Darnley Street Park.
