The Ardrishaig North public realm scheme has funding allocated from Argyll and Bute Council’s Tarbert and Lochgilphead Regeneration Fund and has been awarded Places for Everyone funding from Transport Scotland and Sustrans Scotland.
The main objectives of the project are:
- Improved public realm that encourages people to stop and a more attractive environment for businesses to operate.
- Additional seating and landscape improvements to encourage people to visit the waterfront.
- Better and safer walking and cycling facilities.
The project outcomes are expected to be:
- More footfall on Chalmers Street and the waterfront.
- Address market failure and stimulate private sector activity (support through the Regeneration Fund is required to deliver these improvements).
- Environmental regeneration: significant improvements to this area.
- Supporting jobs: indirect support for jobs if it encourages people to visit the town, as well as supporting jobs in construction.
This project is being developed by a group of partners:
- Argyll and Bute Council
- Ardrishaig Community Council
- Ardrishaig Community Trust
- Sustrans Scotland
- Scottish Canals
The design proposals have been developed by a design team led by ERZ Ltd on behalf of the project partners.
