Gretna Local History Project - communication of local history and walks

Gretna as a town has very rich history, particularly the pivotal role it played in the manufacture of munitions during the First World War. The value of this history was recognised in the Master plan and the local community responded by developing and obtaining funding for a series of heritage walks and supporting signage. This project is now complete.
Richard Greenhow Centre

The Gretna Master plan identified the Richard Greenhow Centre as being very important not just as a community facility but also as an important building right at the heart of the town. The building has undergone an 800,000 refurbishment enhancing the service it provides but also the external appearance.

Pedestrian, cycle, transportation and signing

Work is yet to commence on this project which look at how people can access the centre of Gretna other than by car. It will follow on from the work being undertaken in 2015 in the Central Avenue area.

Public art

The Master plan recognises the value of public art as way of making the town more attractive and explaining its history. The work to public spaces opens up the opportunity for new pieces of the public art and the community are taking these forward.

Future Public Works Strategy

The Gretna Master plan is a long term programme of work and will take many years to complete. It includes a range of future projects such as areas for landscaping and tree planting, improvements specific areas such as Glasgow Road and Gretna Loaning. These will be developed as resources allow.
