Whithorn Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme

Following Solway Heritage's development of a funding application, in April 2006 the Scottish Ministers, through Historic Scotland, agreed to fund a Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme in Whithorn and made an offer of £375,000.  With the Dumfries and Galloway Council’s contribution of £125,000, a total fund of £500,000 was established.

The Whithorn CARS has enabled considerable investment in the built fabric of the town with the aim of securing a more viable economic future.  This investment has been directed at works that will have a significant visual impact on the historic architectural quality and appearance of the town and will ensure high conservation standards in both property repairs and public realm works.

Solway Heritage is delighted to be managing this scheme.
