Scottish community groups making a difference to urban heritage
November 20, 2015
The Scotland's Urban Past website has an interesting article entitled 'Five Scottish community groups making a difference to our urban heritage'.
Included in the five community groups are the Save 1 – 6 Canonmills Bridge’ campaign in Edinburgh, The Friends of Burgh Hall’ in Dunoon, Govanhill Baths Charitable Trust in Glasgow, Forres Heritage Trust (see video) and the work behind Wick Heritage Museum.
The stories range from collaborative partnership with agencies to community activisim, and they involve a range of activities common to community groups, such as online petitions, public meetings and community ownership of buildings. The article also points to the recently passed Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act as potentially enabling more community groups to have a positive impact on urban heritage.
