The Townscape Heritage / Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme

The Faithlie Centre, completed 2020

In 2016 Aberdeenshire Council was awarded funding to deliver a Townscape Heritage and Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme (TH/CARS) in Fraserburgh. The scheme was officially launched on March 11th 2017. Investment of £5.7 million allocated for conservation and restoration work in the new Fraserburgh Central Conservation Area over a five year period to March 2021.

The Scheme’s focus is on restoring and enhancing Fraserburgh’s built heritage making the town centre a more vibrant and attractive place for residents and local businesses.

A number of other regeneration projects have also been taking place in Fraserburgh over the five years (2016-2021) as part of the Fraserburgh 2021 project.

Fraserburgh 2021 has restored the Saltoun Chambers and former Police Station, making them accessible to the public as the Faithlie Centre. We are also returning other derelict or vacant historic properties in the Fraserburgh Central Conservation Area back into active and viable use. This is the best way to ensure that our historic environment is preserved and reinvigorated for future generations. A number of restoration works are being carried out on buildings in Fraserburgh town centre including shop front improvements and reinstatement of original architectural detail. Training opportunities in traditional skills are also available through the scheme.
