Campbeltown Area Regeneration Scheme (CARS) Update

It is taking time but there is a noticeable difference in a number of the shop fronts in Campbeltown as part of the Campbeltown Area Regeneration Scheme - a project which started in 2007 and will run to March 2012. A total funding of 685,000 was made available as part of the CARS Scheme (Historic Scotland 385,000, Argyll & Bute Council 200,000 and HIe 100,000)

The CARS scheme is is conservation based regeneration scheme funded by Historic Scotland with Council matchfunding. Campbeltown is one of the first and there are now 30 similar schemes in Scotland.

The exciting part is additional funding will soon be made available under the Townscape Heritage Initiative which will see more than a 1 million pound invested in the town centre. Both projects will target many of the same buildings and will joint fund their refurbishment/works etc.

The overall project comes under the name of the Campbeltown Town Centre Regeneration Steering Group, which is charied by local man James Lafferty and was set up April 2007 to service CARS (and shortly the THI).

Below are some photos showing work completed.
