North Berwick Town Centre Charrette

Closes 3 Jun 2017

Opened 5 May 2017


Is North Berwick Town Centre a great place for everyone?

Are you interested in how the Town works, how parking and traffic are organised, or have ideas about how walking and cycling can be made easier or the environment improved? Then come along and get involved. 

A design ‘charrette’ is being run in North Berwick from Tuesday 30 May to Saturday 3 June 2017 that anyone can join in. You don’t need any particular skills or expertise, and you’re not expected to have ‘all the answers’, a little time and enthusiasm is all you need to bring.

Through a series of discussions and on site practical demonstrations local people will get the chance to work together with the Charrette Team to develop ideas and test out suggestions that may make the town centre work better for everybody.

The aim is to reach a consensus using local knowledge and views from the whole community on the best way to make changes that can feed into the Local Area Plan and Local Transportation Strategy.

 Visit the North Berwick Town Charrette Facebook page.  

The Charrette is being run by Kevin Murray Associates with Willie Miller Urban Design and Urban Movement who are planning, regeneration, urban design and movement consultants. The Charrette was commissioned by North Berwick Coastal Area Partnership and is funded by the Partnership and the Scottish Government Charrette Mainstreaming Programme.
