We’ve just spent some time at Perth’s Left Bank where we completed a Charrette in Bridgend as part of the Scottish Government’s Town Centre Charrette initiative with fellow team members Nick Wright and Steven Tolson. The project was initiated by Perth & Kinross Council working with Bridgend, Gannochy and Kinnoull Community Council and the Left Bank Community Development Trust.
Well supported by the council’s regeneration team, as well as the chairs of the community council and the Left Bank trust, we gathered in Kinnoull Church Hall over tea and cake to create plans for the future of Bridgend (with thanks to the Bradshaws from Tea on the Tay for keeping us fed). We came away with lots of positive ideas and are busy working up proposals based on what we discussed. The image shown here is a vision for Perth and Bridgend featuring a new footbridge for the city linking the heart of the city centre with the Left Bank.
