Funding has been secured for repairs to the exterior of four key buildings within the conservation area:
Glengate Hall, Glengate
the former Airlie Arms, St Malcolm’s Wynd
1 - 3 Roods
former Warehouse/Store, Ogilvy’s Close
The former Glengate Hall was the first priority project to receive grant funding for restoration/repairs to the external building fabric. The project also received funding for internal works from the Scottish Government via the Empty Homes Loan Fund.
Refurbishment works to convert the building into nine apartments for social rent is now complete, and the building occupied.
The Airlie Arms Hotel is now under new ownership and has been renovated internally and externally to upgrade this listed building’s appearance within the town centre. CARS grant assistance was offered but declined by the new owners.
The vacant and derelict building at 1 – 7 Roods has also been repaired externally under CARS grant assistance and the building refurbished internally to accommodate a barber's shop on the ground floor with flatted accommodation above.
Repair and restoration works at the former Warehouse/Store in Ogilvy’s Close commenced in February 2016 but halted in March 2016 due to a contractual issue.
