Urban Animation produces Inveraray masterplan
Argyll Estates have appointed Urban Animation and Neil Sutherland Architects to masterplan a mixed use development for Inveraray, Argyll & Bute.

This work will establish a long term framework for development in and around the 18th century village which has suffered from post WWII suburbanisation.

The preliminary plan proposes uniting these historic and modern components into a cohesive whole by providing a mix of housing type, size and tenancy together with new services, facilities and allotments.

Urban Animation Director, Richard Heggie, said: “Inveraray is a truly unique village but there’s a serious danger that short term thinking will continue to undermine the quality of the place. The Inveraray Project is a rare opportunity for bold urban planning to enrich a historic legacy and create something of equally lasting quality.”

Comments and suggestions are invited for the masterplan which is set to go on public consultation on June 18-19 at Inveraray’s Nicoll Hall.

multi-purpose community centre for use by all local organisations/clubs urgently needed to keep alive a community becoming fragmented by poor facilities

Initial community consultation period runs until 31 July and a questionnaire is available at the following link :

Others have also suggested a facility of this type. We are looking to engage fully with Argyll & Bute Council and other public agencies to explore how the scheme can integrate public services as efficiently and effectively as possible. That's an important component in achieving the kind of mixed use community we'd like to encourage - giving people access to local services, creating employment opportunities and also variety in the physical form of the development with commercial and community buildings.
