Thursday 2nd March, 9.30am-4pm Dovecot Studios, 10 Infirmary Street, Edinburgh
Following the incredible interest at the Child in the City Conference in 2016 NHS Health Scotland and Play Scotland have designed a workshop to show participants how the Place Standard Tool works and how it can be used in all communities.
We are delighted that the opening address will be given by Ian Gilzean, Chief Architect, Scottish Government and Chair of Place Standard Board.
The Place Standard Tool is a good practice resource that has been designed to support communities, the public and private sectors, and other organisations to work better together to deliver high quality places that meet the needs of the local community.
The Place Standard has been developed by the Scottish Government, NHS Health Scotland and Architecture and Design Scotland to evaluate the quality of places.
The Place Standard tool (www.placestandard.scot) encourages people, including children and young people, to work together, and to discuss places in a meaningful way. It allows places to be assessed consistently and compared over time. Unlike many other design assessments, the place standard tool considers people and the social life of a place to be just as important as its built assets. The Tool includes Play and Recreation as part of the assessment, which links strongly with the exciting new Play Map resource developed by Play Scotland.
This workshop is appropriate for community/neighbourhood planning officers, people working in or with play, education, or with a particular remit for children or young people, planners, developers, investors, funders, policy makers and others who have an interest in assessing and improving the quality of their local spaces.
