Drop-In and Discover More About Fraserburgh

>> Monday, 19 October 2015

Fraserburgh residents will have the chance next week to discover how a multi-million regeneration project for the town is progressing.

A Fraserburgh 2021 drop-in event for members of the public will take place between 4.00pm and 7.00pm on Wednesday, 28th October in the Council Chambers at 1 Saltoun Square.

Fraserburgh 2021 is a joint Townscape Heritage and Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme that will support the regeneration of the built heritage of the town.

Priority projects include historic properties in Saltoun Square, such as the Townhouse and former Police Station, one of the town’s most recognisable structures.

Survey work, feasibility studies and public consultation for the scheme are well underway as part of the development phase of the second-round submission of an application to Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) that could unlock £1.8m of funding.

The drop-in session will include information on the project so far such as the priority projects and complimentary initiatives surrounding the scheme and officers will be on hand to answer questions.

Chairman of Aberdeenshire Council’s Infrastructure Services Committee Cllr David Aitchison said:

“Fraserburgh is a town of great historical significance in Scotland and it is very exciting to see things progressing thanks to the council’s regeneration strategy.

“This event will give local residents the chance to find out more about the work going on behind the scenes and I hope it is well attended.”

Chairman of the Banff and Buchan Area Committee Cllr John Cox said:

“The initial funding from HLF showed a vote of confidence in the people and businesses of Fraserburgh and the council is very grateful for the positive response from the town so far.

“I would like to thank council officers who worked extremely hard to prepare the first application and are continuing to do so as we work toward the second round.”

A decision on the application is expected to be made by HLF in March 2016. If successful, the scheme will then delivered over a five-year period until March 2021.
