Councillors will be given an update on several projects aimed at revitalising the north-east’s biggest town next week.
Efforts to regenerate Peterhead began two years ago when the local authority approved a strategy called Developing Excellence in our North Coast Communities.
As well as Europe’s biggest fishing port, it was designed to boost Banff, Macduff and Fraserburgh by 2021.
Members of the Buchan area committee will be given updates on schemes included in the five year plan on Tuesday.
These include fresh designs to transform Drummers Corner in the town centre and the £70million pound Peterhead Academy replacement project, which is included in the council’s capital plan for 2018/19.
A report compiled by Aberdeenshire Council infrastructure chief Stephen Archer said that almost half of the £1.5million budget set aside for work in the town has been “legally committed”.
He said: “There are many ideas and projects yet to be delivered in this five year plan, and many more partnerships to be formed in taking forward delivery.
“Progress is being made across the themes in the action plan and 46% of the allocated budget is legally committed.
“As a central project, Drummers Corner redevelopment is taking shape now with detailed designs produced.”
The document also uses a traffic light system to gauge progress on each of the ideas.
Red indicates action not yet started, yellow means action initiated and green stands for a project that has started.
One of the schemes granted a green light was the launch of the heritage trail around the port last year.
The report said it helped develop interest in the town and its cultural and historical significance.
The Drummers Corner proposals have been categorised as yellow, new artist impressions of the revamped square were released last month.
The development of Peterhead’s history and its use to boost business as well as a review of the town’s conservation area are in the red category with work on the project expected to begin in January.
Members of the Buchan area committee will be asked to note the report’s details when they meet in Peterhead.
