Update on the developments of the Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme project

Argyll and Bute Council will be holding a drop-in event at the Nichol Hall (Wee Hall) in Inveraray, from 2.00pm to 7.00pm on Tuesday 17th December.

Council staff will be on hand at the update event to answer any questions about the progress of the project so far and the plans for the future.

The Inveraray CARS project aims to invest around £2million in regenerating the town, making it a better place to live, work and visit.

As well as repairing some of the older buildings in the town centre, the project will also provide some skills training opportunities.

The project has benefitted from £1million of funding from Historic Scotland, as well as investment from Argyll and Bute Council and a variety of partners.

Policy Lead for Special Projects, Councillor Ellen Morton said, ‘’While the Inveraray regeneration project has taken a while to get off the ground, we are now confident of moving it along and delivering real change on the ground for the people of Inveraray and the surrounding area.’’

‘’I would encourage people to come along to the event and see for themselves the exciting plans for the future’’

‘’Along with Argyll and Bute Council’s CHORD and TIF projects, this shows once again that the council is committed to regeneration projects across the county’’

‘’Argyll and Bute is an ambitious council with big regeneration plans and we look forward to delivering success ‘’
