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.
The Scottish Land Fund (SLF) and the North Highland Curling Trust provided the finance to commission a Feasibilty and Business Plan from Ironside Farrar and our application to SLF for funding to purchase the site has been successful and the legal teams are 'on the case'. We are now working on phase 1 a car & coach park - to which we have added day time motorhome parking to address the influx last year.
We have been supported in this by the Dornoch Common Good Fund award of £39,760, together with £28,052 from the Town Centre Fund, £80,000 Highland Coastal Communities and a conditional award of £245,450 from the Rural Tourism Infrastructure Fund. In November 2021 we are close to finalising the full funding package for the vehicle park anmd hope to start work shortly.
Phase 2 for a MUGA and winter skating rink is part of the planning application but subject to further funding bids. The planning application was submitted at the end of September 20 and granted on 31 March 21.
