Creating the Future History of Scotland’s Towns: The Key to Social, Cultural and Economic Wellbeing

This year’s Scotland’s Towns Conference examines how, as a nation of towns, it is critical that we embrace our heritage; not only to acknowledge it, but to measure its worth, and value it; and to curate, preserve, protect and promote it. In a world seeking authenticity, it is how we use our towns’ heritage moving forward, that will help determine the social, cultural and economic wellbeing of communities across Scotland.

The conference this year is in the wonderful Paisley. Truly embracing its future history, the town’s vision is centred on its world class cultural and heritage assets and has begun an extensive programme of regeneration activity and investment. Set within the context of the Paisley Town Centre Heritage Asset Strategy as the regeneration strategy for the next 20 years, this activity contributes to re-establishing Paisley as Renfrewshire’s primary town centre for the benefit of local people and businesses as well as the national and international community. You will not only hear about Paisley’s Vision for 2026 but step into this living plan, walking through the town’s strategic activity areas that will deliver transformational change.
