REGENERATION CHARRETTES

ABERFELDY, AUCHTERARDER & CRIEFF REGENERATION CHARRETTES

Perth and Kinross Council

Jura Consultants worked as part of a multi-disciplinary team to provide charrettes to the Perthshire towns of Aberfeldy, Auchterarder and Crieff with the aim of allowing the respective communities to articulate their long-term vision for the towns where they live and work. Two charrettes were held in each town, and facilitated the bringing together of a range of stakeholders including residents, local business owners and the local authority to identify critical issues facing the towns and devise strategies for a framework for the future. The first focused on visioning, defining priorities and setting down initial ideas. The multi-disciplinary design team then presented the ideas they had worked on following the first charrette in the second, allowing the community the opportunity to respond and further guide the developing strategies. This produced a clear set of proposals which were incorporated into a final report for each town, which included key initiatives and an Action Plan.
