Scotland’s Town Toolkit: A One-Stop Resource for Transforming Your Town




5 November 2021

We are delighted to see Scotland’s Town Toolkit – a free online resource – available to support all those who seek to turn aspirations for their towns into reality.

Launched this summer, the Toolkit was developed by Scotland’s Towns Partnership with support from Scottish Government and over 200 contributing organisations, including the Green Action Trust. It is full of tried and tested ideas to help anyone who wants to make positive changes in their town, covering topics such as arts and culture, buildings and property, clean and green, enterprise and business, and streets and spaces.

The Toolkit is built to facilitate access to the information that you most need depending on the focus of your project and your current step on the journey to delivery, whatever your organisation or sector:

  • The ‘taking action’ page gives information on the nuts and bolts of making change:  collaboration, planning, resourcing, delivery and measuring success.
  • The thematic sections provide ideas, advice, case studies, short videos and links to further information.
  • ’Inspiration’ case studies show how four towns – Dumfries, Huntly, Paisley and Stromness – have become success stories by bringing ideas featured in the Toolkit to fruition, each in their own unique way.


Commenting on the launch of the Toolkit, Derek Robertson, Chief Executive of the Green Action Trust, said:

“The importance of regeneration to Scotland’s towns is clear and just as vital are the tools to develop the right solutions for the right places. This toolkit provides valuable support to those taking positive action to change our towns for the better.”
