Dornoch Police Station - Update
Many thanks to those who came to the drop-in sessions on 11th October to meet the consultants and see and hear about the Feasibility Study. The key findings are here
The next stage is for the consultants to produce a Business Plan for the four identified uses - of a business hub, studio/workshop/ storage space (for designers, artists and makers), gym and childcare centre for 0-3 year olds.
If you are interested in renting office, creative or storage space please email
You may have seen an article in the Northern Times outlining DACIC's ambitious plans for a new multi-purpose building in Dornoch, on the vacant site south of the new UHI Student accommodation block and opposite the Medical Centre.
We believe this project could be transformational as it would open up all year round tourism with the building being available to hire for wedding receptions, conferences, music, arts and sports events in the Summer and curling in the Winter. The original plan for a gym has now been incorporated in the Police Station plans above, allowing a community hall to be included in the plans at the suggestion of the Community Association - which if both projects are successful would allow the Social Club to be sold.
We want to hear what you think about these plans - so please answer our 10 question survey below.
