Your chance to help redesign heart of town centre; REGENERATION.

Residents of Wick are being urged to get involved in a newly-launched drive to breathe new life into the centre of town.

Sustrans Scotland is working with local people to regenerate the area and make it more attractive for locals and visitors.

The initiative is being bankrolled by PS200,000 from the charity's street design programme, secured by the town's four Highland Councillors.

It will focus on the pedestrian precinct of the High Street, including Market Square and the two pedestrian crossings on Bridge Street.

Ideas are being sought on how these areas can be improved while the design team is also keen to hear suggestions about the rest of Bridge Street.

Kasia Koziel, Sustrans Scotland project lead, said: "We want to provide as many opportunities as possible for people to be able to share ideas on how to redesign this area to ensure it meets the needs of those who use it most.

"We look forward to hearing ideas on how we can help create a welcoming, more attractive space that will provide people of all ages and abilities with a comfortable and safe area to walk, wheel and cycle through."

The council's Wick Project champion, Councillor Nicola Sinclair, said the street redesign is part of a plan the local authority will launch next month.

Public drop-in sessions are on October 17 in the council's Wick HQ between 2pm-6pm and at the Pulteney Centre between 7pm-9pm.
