The Scottish Sustainable Communities Initiative (SSCI), launched in 2008, aims to encourage projects that demonstrate ambition and vision in the creation of new places and in the regeneration of existing places. The Initiative also provides an opportunity to raise the profile of a variety of developments which will serve as exemplars, demonstrating innovation in design and delivery.
The Scottish Sustainable Communities Initiative - Two Years On report provides a summary of prominent issues and common themes emerging in the 11 exemplar projects, setting out the approaches taken by project teams, their achievements and also the challenges that they have faced over the past two years.
If Scotland is to become better able to deliver high quality places, it is important that information and experiences are disseminated widely. The Two Years On report aims to highlight the value of shared experience to develop skills, and to illustrate some of the ways in which sustainable communities can be delivered.
