New! - the Place Standard tool with Climate Lens
A new Climate Lens is now available for the Place Standard tool. This new resource offers the opportunity to consider climate change and how it will impact on health and wellbeing and Scotland’s places.
Good place-making is essential for designing a robust local response to the climate emergency, such as taking local action to cut emissions and to increase resilience to local climate change impacts. The climate lens can help you to consider how the impacts and influence of climate change will play out in a local area
Place Standard tool Children and Young Peoples’ Versions
Two new versions of the Place Standard tool have been developed to support children and young people participating in conversations about their places, assessing the quality of their places and identifying change and improvement. Both tools have been adapted and developed by Play Scotland and A Place in Childhood in consultations with children and young people.

The practitioners and organisations featured in the case studies explain their reason for using the tool, the methods they applied, their approach to empowering local communities and the impact this has had. They also share their perceptions of the tool, the knowledge gained in using it as well as any valuable lessons learned and worth sharing with others.

Place Standard Strategy
The implementation of the Place Standard is guided by a strategic plan.
The plan sets a vision for how the Place Standard tool can build on its successes to date and support place-based working across Scotland.
It aims to ensure that the views, stories and real life experiences of people living in a particular place are captured, valued and integrated into the heart of decision-making processes
