Live Life Morvern wins Scottish Planning Innovation Overall Award!

Congratulations to everyone at PAS and Live Life Morvern Steering Group for not only being nominated for the Scottish Government's Scottish Planning Innovation Award in the Sustainability Category but for actually winning the Overall Award! -

Live Life Morvern was a joint initiative, led by Morvern Community Council in partnership with  Morvern Community Development Company and Morvern Community Trust. The steering group worked with Planning Aid Scotland, and the whole community of Morvern, to deliver the plan. 

Annie Tordoff, of the Live Life Morvern Steering group, attended the interview along with Paul Ede of Planning Aid Scotland and said:

"The original steering group was myself and Douglas (MCC), David Campbell (MCT) and Amy Stammers & Sarah Jones (MCDC). During our interview, the judges applauded our 'crack on' approach and innovation for example using/piloting the place based standard planning tool through a climate lens and employing a local PAS associate (Bonny). They particularly liked and mentioned at the award ceremony that we described our collaboration with PAS as 'PAS and Paul Ede came to Morvern as partners in the process and left as friends'."

The film which was submitted for the award and which brilliantly sums up Live Life Morvern's achievements is available to view on Dropbox below.

Congratulations go to the whole steering group who worked tirelessly alongside Planning Aid Scotland to bring this plan into reality.  Well done all!
