AN AWARD-WINNING partnership in Alloa is seeking people's views on the next set of improvements in the town.

The Living Alloa partnership, made up of the council's planning department, CTSI and Alloa First, has launched a survey using the Place Standard Tool.

The partnership, which scooped the Scotland Urban Regeneration Forum (SURF) Award for Most Improving Place in Scotland, first carried out such a survey in 2018.

Anthea Coulter, chief officer at CTSI, explained: “The Place Standard Tool uses 14 themes to learn what people think about their place – last time round the lowest ranking themes were: feeling safe, care and maintenance, work and local economy and social contact.”

The information helped set up Alloa in Bloom, Alloa Hub and welcomed good causes into the town.

Alloa First invested in CCTV and brought in the Friday Market while the council helped improve Bank Street seating area, was behind the mural at the lane by TSB and helped with capital costs for the hub.

Anthea added: "These improvements would not have happened without the survey helping guide us initially and we hope that people have appreciated and benefitted from all these changes and have thoughts on our next steps.”

Visit the end of February for the survey.
