The Place Principle

Read about NatureScot’s contribution to place-based working.

NatureScot, alongside other public bodies and agencies, is seeking to embed the Place Principle as the way we do business.

The principle requests that all those responsible for providing services and looking after assets in a place need to work and plan together, and with local communities, to improve the lives of people, support inclusive and sustainable economic growth and create more successful places.

We commit to taking a collaborative, place based approach, with a shared purpose to support a clear way forward for all services, assets and investments, which will maximise the impact of their combined resources.

Our video, NatureScot’s contribution to place-based working, explains how we will embed the Place Principle in the way we work.
