Wick Map Streets For All Update: Exploring The Designs - Have Your Say On Draft Designs For High Street

24th August 2020

From Sustrans.

In a series of engagement activities and events last year, the local community told us what changes they wanted to see in the High Street to make it attractive, accessible and welcoming to people, as well as highlighting Wick's cultural heritage. We've used this feedback to come up with design proposals and are giving you the opportunity to view, comment and shape these initial proposals. These draft designs are now available to view outside Caithness House as well as on our project website

How to have your say

Until 14 September 2020, you can get involved in this stage of the project in the following ways:

Visit the project website and complete the online consultation.

Complete a paper survey (pick up from Tesco, Coop or Pulteney Centre) and submit it using the enclosed freepost envelope.

Take part in our webinars (details below).

If you are a business owner on High Street, a design package will be posted through your storefront letterbox between 24- 31 August 2020, containing an outline of the designs, a survey and a freepost envelope.

Share the website with your friends and neighbours so they can share their views too.


Accessible Design Workshop - How accessible are the new designs for Wick High Street?

Date: 2 Sept 2020

Time: 11.00-12.45

In this online workshop, you'll learn more about the aspects of the designs that aim to make High Street and the crossings on Bridge Street more accessible, and provide feedback on how they might impact people of differing abilities. If you encounter barriers that make it difficult for you to get around as a pedestrian (including motorised wheelchair and mobility scooter users), join us on 2 September to tell us how these new proposals will impact you.
