Stonehaven Town Partnership are holding a Public Meeting regarding ‘The Future of Stonehaven on Thursday 20th August at 7:00 pm in St James Church Hall, Arbuthnott Street, Stonehaven AB39 2JB and would like to invite you and friends to come along.
A number of voluntary/community sector organisations have noted their interested in shared accommodation in the building that may form a kind of one-stop-shop / community hub.
The agenda will include:
A description of the building & the project so far
Suggestions for its re-creation, and the options being considered
Open floor discussion on the options (and any others to be suggested)
The next steps and keeping in touch
If you want to read up a bit more beforehand, the project documents are on STP’s website at
*The document listed here entitled ‘Reduction of Options 150323 final’ explains why a scheme of significant reconstruction of the building is not possible and explains the kind of spatial arrangements that will guide the kinds of organisational tenants that may be able to be accommodated there.
The Scottish Government has been working with partners NHS Health Scotland and Architecture and Design Scotland to develop a Place Standard Assessment tool. The aim of the Place Standard tool is to support the delivery of high quality places – which can be instrumental in reducing health inequalities. The tool provides questions for individuals and community groups to answer, to create a snapshot of built and social assets, and consultation is open regarding the format of the tool.
