People in Carnoustie have been given a chance to express their aspirations for the future of the town.
Last year more than 650 people contributed to a design charrette aimed at establishing a vision for the future of the town centre.
An event at Carnoustie Golf Hotel presented some of the results of the charrette and offered the opportunity for residents to give more feedback.
The main points raised from the process were for there to be a better retail offering in the town, a stronger range of community, social and cultural facilities and for Carnoustie to be promoted as a more attractive tourist destination.
At yesterday’s event, members of the public were given the chance to engage in workshops that looked at how to improve the town’s retail offering, how to promote the town seafront as well as a proposed digital signage system.
Gordon Reid, director of Carlogie Ltd which managed the charrette and produced the report, said: “We had 650 people attend the sessions last year which is a huge number in comparison to other towns across Scotland.
“Everyone was very engaged and enthusiastic and we got lots of good ideas, which went in a report to our client, Angus Council.
“We will not just be looking at the progress over the last year. We will be looking ahead too.
“One of the workshops will look into digital signage in the town, which would ping up information on people’s smartphones.
“All you do is put your phone next to the sign. It could be things like if you’re at the seafront then it would bring up information about habitat and wildlife.
“We are keen to get detailed thoughts on projects such as what the ideal town centre retail offer would look like and what should happen at the seafront to make it a visitor destination.”
Yesterday’s workshops were attended by pupils from Carnoustie High and the town’s three primary schools.
Donald Currie, head teacher of Carnoustie High, said: “This is a wonderful opportunity for young people to have their voice heard and contribute to the future vision of Carnoustie.”
