Last night marked the 18th Scottish Awards for Quality in Planning and we are delighted to announce that we had success with the Open Space Strategy 2010.
The Strategy was a real team effort which included staff from Planning and other Council services. The 2009 Open Space Audit informed the Strategy and was only possible with the input of over 600 people from local communities giving their time and views on open space in their area. So a big thanks to everyone for their contribution.
Consultation on the new draft Open Space Strategy has now finished and the final version will be reported to the Planning Committee on 8 December. We hope that the new strategy can be just as successful.
Also, we were proud to be part of the Forth Bridge World Heritage Site entry which won a Working in Partnership Award. Thanks to Fife Council for leading on the award entry and for the cooperation of Historic Environment Scotland and the local communities in showing how partnerships can work for all.
