Annan Regeneration

The regeneration plan for Annan town centre has been prepared by Annan Regeneration Steering Group, whose members are drawn from the local authority, community organisations and businesses.

It is a long term (15 to 20 year) plan of action designed to make Annan a better place to live, work and visit.

Reflecting community aspirations, the regeneration plan has several strategic objectives.  Create a vibrant and active town centre to keep and attract young people to the town.  Create more opportunities for people to come together for community activities inside and out, and to live more active lifestyles.  Tackle climate change, increase footfall, provide town centre living, develop the evening economy and celebrate the town's heritage.

Annan Projects & Status

Chapelcross Development Framework
The decommissioning of the Chapelcross Power Station site has been identified as an opportunity to attract new businesses to the area and enable local business to expand. Work is underway on a plan to put the infrastructure in place to ensure that the site is the first choice for businesses looking for development sites.

Getting Annandale Active 

Funding from Sustrans is being used to explore the possibilities of how active travel can be incorporated into Annan town centre and how we can Link Gretna, Eastriggs, Annan and Powfoot to encourage more people to walk and cycle in Annandale.

The aim is to encourage more people to walk and cycle, making car parking more effective and less dominant. The priorities included a walking and cycling network, improvement of the high street pedestrian experience, and a parking strategy.

Annan Harbour
Annan Harbour Action Group began as a community-led initiative and is now a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation. Since 2011, the group has implemented infrastructure improvements, run various activities and organised a programme of events. They aim to revitalise the local area, promote harbour usage and raise public awareness of the harbour as a community resource.
