Report

The Local Government and Regeneration Committee report on the 'Delivery of Regeneration in Scotland' will be launched Monday 24 February 2014.

Throughout 2013 the Committee met with communities across Scotland to hear their thoughts on local issues, and on how communities could best carry out future regeneration projects themselves.   

This report is the culmination of over 12 months work that included these fact finding visits as well as written submissions and oral evidence sessions.

With this in mind the report will be launched, simultaneously at 1100am in both Aberdeen and Glasgow, two of the venues visited by Committee Members during those fact finding visits last year.

The following flyers detail our launch programme:
