Port Glasgow Town Centre Charrette
In 2014, ri was successful with an application to the Scottish Government to assist with a funding for a Charrette for Port Glasgow town centre, through its charrette Mainstreaming Programme 2013-14. Riverside Inverclyde and Inverclyde Council sponsored the charrette and the design team was facilitated by Austin Smith:Lord and Douglas Wheeler Associates as part of the Regeneration Strategy & Masterplan commission.
A design charrette is an intensive multi-disciplinary, multi day planning process that encourages active engagement of stakeholders in developing design ideas collaboratively in response to specific planning and urban design issues.
The charrette was undertaken over four days on 18-21 March 2014, with the team based in Baillie Hall, Port Glasgow Town Hall. Overall the charrette aimed to produce design led, graphic based outputs, to illustrate feasible, site specific and local economic development actions and timescales required to deliver these. The Port Glasgow town centre charrette played a crucial role in the process and helped shape part of the overall Regeneration Strategy and Masterplan.
