Building At Miller Street/Bank Row, Wick Also Gets Major Facelift
The work at Lower Pulteneytown has been going on steadily for the past four years as part of the Highland council run regeneration scheme with grants from the Heritage Lottery scheme and other funders.  This project on the building at the corner of Miller Street and Bank Row is being run by Pentland Housing and will create one shop/office and flats.  with a new marina to follow the pontoons into Wick Harbour next year and the Memorial Garden across the road going and with the BBC's Beechgrove Garden team coming in August to help with the work and make a TV programme this is fast becoming a sought after area of Wick after many years of decline.  Others areas of Lower Pulteneytown already improved include Blackstairs, Telford Street   It all Started In December 2000  Several of the streets in Lower Pulteneytown have had pavements relaid in the past few months using traditional Caithness Flagstone more in keeping with the buildings than brick or tar.  If you have not been there for a long time the changes are amazing and ongoing.  Anyone remember all those letters in the Groat just few years ago about the state of Wick.  It has taken a few years but it is changing for the better and more work is ongoing.
