Young Placemakers help shape the area's future

June 20th, 2014

THE VOICE of future of land use in the TAYPlan area has been heard at the highest levels after a group of young people met with the minister responsible.

TAYplan’s eight “Young Placemakers” shared their ideas with Derek Mackay, Minister for Local Government and Planning at the Scottish Parliament.

The young enthusiasts have been ambassadors for the way the Dundee and Perth City Regions should change over the next 20 years working with TAYplan to encourage people to get involved and have their say.

Pam Ewen, TAYplan Manager said: “The Young Placemakers discussed some inspiring ideas with the Minister looking at how they feel the area could be enhanced to provide residents with a better quality of life.

“They all had a fantastic time at the parliament and were delighted to have seen how the system works at the top level.”

Planning Aid for Scotland, a charitable body has encouraged young people throughout Scotland to get involved in shaping the future of their place.

TAYplan is the Strategic Development Planning Authority for Dundee, Perth, Angus and North Fife and is seeking views on issues such as the number of new homes, green spaces and town centres.

Anyone who wants to have their say can complete a questionnaire at www.tayplan-sdpa.gov.uk/mir2014 by Friday 27th June.
