Making Galashiels Better: Creating a Place Plan for Galashiels

Picture 1Help make Galashiels a better place to live, work, learn and enjoy.

Please complete the ‘Place Standard Tool’ by scanning the QR code or at the following web address:

There are fourteen basic questions which can be scored on a scale of 1-7 taking at most a few minutes to complete. Comments can also be made under each question, and you are encouraged to do so!

The valuable data you provide will help identify what is good, not so good, where improvements are needed and priorities for Galashiels. It’s the first stage of consultation that will be used to create a community-led Place Plan for Galashiels led by local people with professional support.

Funding is available to support infrastructure, public realm and related projects that improve health, wellbeing and town surroundings in the form of the Borderlands Inclusive Growth Deal and specifically the Place Programme. In order to unlock the funding a well consulted Place Plan needs to be created.

A Town Team is being formed from individuals representing organisations in the town which cover the wide spectrum of interest from schools, College and University through to Youth , Community Council, Sports, Arts and other organisations, and individuals, who wish to help drive forward this opportunity. Contact if you are interested.

We will be publishing this information widely in Gala Life and the local papers as well as through the website and social media channels. We will keep you updated with responses as results in due course.

Your feedback is invaluable in making sure as many voices from Galashiels as possible are heard in the development of our  Place Plan for Galashiels.
