The Kirriemuir community is to be consulted again about its built heritage, this time about the town’s conservation area.

It follows a recent consultation exercise carried out by Angus Council on suggested improvements for the town square.

The proposal went before members of the communities committee on Tuesday and, at the time of going to press, was set to be approved.

In her report Vivien Smith, head of planning and place, said that there is a risk, if the consultation was not agreed, of the council breaching conditions attached to funding for the Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme.

Consultation on the proposed Kirriemuir Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan would last six weeks.

She said: “Historic Scotland, as part of the conditions of grant award to provide funding through the Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme, requires Angus Council to produce a Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan for Kirriemuir Conservation Area.

“Historic Scotland has given the council until September 30, 2014 for this to be adopted.

“Subject to committee agreement, it will be the subject of a six-week public consultation including a public exhibition.”

She also said that the plan would help to identify the special interest and changing needs of the area while maintaining appropriate design standards.
