The conversation continues in Kirriemuir tomorrow (Tuesday, September 27), with organisers of the town’s design charrette revealing their findings.

Focusing on Kirriemuir’s past, present and future the project to deliver a long-term vision and strategy for the town centre began earlier this month.

Kirrie Talks has prompted debate, discussion and ideas within the community. Tuesday’s event will allow people to hear the proposals for their town’s future at first hand, put forward more ideas and ask questions.

Now the design team will report back to the community at their studio at KirrieConnections, 5 Bank Street, DD8 4BE.

There will be an exhibition at the design studio from 2 to 6pm and is open for anyone to drop-in and see the emerging ideas generated through the charrette.

Engagement arts organisation WAVEparticle will also be showing a director’s cut of the film they produced in and around the town between 6 and 6.30pm.

This will be followed by the Report Back presentation from 6.30 to 8.30pm, which will also include community Pecha Kucha presentations at 7pm (Pecha Kucha is a format where discussion is encouraged around 20 images that are shown for 20 seconds each).

Developed by Angus Council and facilitated by a team of experts in town planning, architecture, property development and community regeneration, the charrette’s aim is to provide a detailed view of the town’s existing and possible future services, including housing, retail, leisure and tourism.

More news and updates can be found on the charrette’s dedicated Twitter and Facebook pages as well as its Padlet.
