Place Directors: factsheet

Information about Place Directors who represent Scottish Government in local authority and Community Planning Partnership areas.

The role of Place Directors is to:

  • understand, promote and support how public services work together and with communities
  • improve wellbeing and outcomes on local and national priorities. 

They provide a bridge between local areas and the Scottish Government, providing two-way intelligence, constructive criticism and, where valuable, support for local capacity building. Their strategic role complements the more detailed responsibility of civil servants in relevant Scottish Government policy teams for testing and supporting how specific policies, services and reform programmes are taken forward in places across Scotland.
