Neilstion, Scotland’s first Renaissance Town, has won the community involvement category of the Scottish Awards for Quality in Planning (SAQP). The award recognises the excellent work achieved by the community of Neilston in creating a culture of positive placemaking.

The Neilston Charter, developed as a key element of the Scottish Renaissance Towns Initiative, sets out a clear path for the future.
