The conversation on the future of Montrose gains fresh impetus tomorrow with a public display of the plans and ideas to emerge so far from the local design charrette.

The team behind Montrose Talks, the town centre design charrette, will give their final presentations at Montrose Library tomorrow (Wednesday, April 20).

There will be two sessions, the first at 2pm, which will then be repeated at 7pm.

The design charrette took place last month and aimed to help local people and businesses set a vision for the future of their town and, at the same time, address challenges, expose opportunities and maximise Montrose’s potential.

An Angus Council spokesman said: “Doors open from midday for anyone who wants to pop in and have a look at the exhibition of plans.

“Organisers are very pleased with the contributions received from the public during the three-day charrette in March and are encouraging people to come along to hear their proposals first hand.

“The event will also give people of all ages the chance to ask questions and provide feedback.

“Developed by Angus Council with funding assistance from Scottish Government, Montrose Talks is led by experts from the fields of town planning, architecture, property development and community regeneration.

“Their remit has been to assess the challenges, opportunities and priorities of the community for their town centre and develop a long-term vision and strategy for its future, within the context of the surrounding area.”

Refreshments will be provided tomorrow.
