To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to attract visitors to Scotland’s town centres.
Answered by: Kevin Stewart 26 October 2016
Developing tourism as a key sector remains an important Government commitment and we have made clear that we will continue to work to make all of Scotland a destination of first choice for visitors from around the world.
As part of the Town Centre Action Plan we have developed the Town Centre Toolkit. This free online resource gives communities information and advice on how they can make their town centres more attractive, active and accessible. It is being hosted and promoted by Scotland's Towns Partnership through their website.
