Charrette Mainstreaming programme 2015-16

The Scottish Government today announced that the Charrette Mainstreaming programme will continue for 2015-16. Funding for the programme has been increased this year to encourage even more communities across the country to have a say on shaping and planning their town centres and neighbourhoods.

The focus of the 2015-16 charrette programme is on 3 key areas:

  • Projects that link community planning and spatial planning processes
  • Charrette projects commissioned directly by communities
  • Linkages between town centre action plans and community plans
The programme also encourages projects applying to the charrette fund to consider the delivery of charrette outcomes. Linkages with other participatory democracy initiatives - such as participatory budgeting - are encouraged.

The scheme is now open to applications and full details, including how to apply for funding can be found here.
