Kirriemuir Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme (CARS)
Kirriemuir Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme (CARS) is a partnership between Historic Scotland and Angus Council to provide a jointly funded grant programme to enhance the appearance of Kirriemuir Conservation Area. The grant scheme amounts to some £1.1m and will run for 5 years. During this time, a Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan will also be produced which will analyse the area's special character.
Update – Revised Boundary Agreed For Small Grants Scheme
At the last meeting of the CARS Steering Group on Tuesday 19 August 2014, it was agreed that the current boundary of the town centre Priority Area be extended to include certain buildings on the immediate periphery (Reform Street, Brechin Road, Schoolwynd, Kirkwynd, Glengate and St. Malcolm’s Wynd). A number of additional properties are now included within Phase 1 Extension of the Priority Area for Small Grants which means that grant applications for eligible works to these buildings (front/ public elevations only) can be accepted for consideration by the Steering Group.

A further review of the uptake of grants under the Small Grant Scheme will be undertaken in August 2015 at which time, subject to sufficient funds being available, the Priority Area boundary may again be extended (Phase 2) to incorporate the Roods and thereafter the remaining properties within the Conservation Area boundary.
