Development guidance - Caithness and Sutherland Town Centre Strategy
The Caithness and Sutherland Town Centre Strategy aims to support the delivery of the Caithness and Sutherland Local Development Plan (CaSPlan) by outlining a number of potential actions that may be undertaken to improve the vitality and amenity of the main town centres in the area: Brora, Dornoch, Golspie, Thurso and Wick. The actions were developed from the findings of the 2018 Town Centre Health Check undertaken by the Council and are structured within the framework established by the Scottish Government’s Town Centre Toolkit.
The Strategy was approved by the two Area Committees in February 2020 and adopted as Supplementary Guidance in October 2020.
An associated Action Programme, outlining steps that may be taken by a range of individuals and bodies to improve their town centres, has been drawn together by officers in consultation with Ward Members and the parties mentioned in it.
Progress updates provided from time-to-time by those working on actions included in the associated Action Programme may be used to produce and publish Action Programme updates.
