Council Staff At Wick Moved to Temporary Offices
24th January 2013
The council staff are shown in these photos leaving their offices in Market Square, Wick and moving to their new home in Girnigoe Street where they will stay for nearly two years as the new offices in Market Square are built. New offices have been needed for some years and now Highland council has begun the process as part of a series of major investments to regenerate Wick.
Wick councillors Bill Fernie and Civic Leader Gail Ross attended a Charrette launch in Assembly rooms joined by area committee chairwoman Councillor Deirdre Mackay where emphasis was placed on public involvement in a process to plan the future of the town in coming years. Councillors Ross and Mackay made welcome speeches and emphasised the great future beginning now in Wick with the new offices and soon the start of the 3 new schools and community facilities - library and swimming pool and the new children's home at Rhind house. The combined investments will amount to the biggest capital spend in any Highland town for many years.
The new council offices are just the start...........Wick is and will be a great place to live and to attract new investments with some of the best infrastructure anywhere.
