Permission to Demolish

Councillors at a planning meeting in Wick Assembly Rooms on 22 January 2007 granted planning permission to Norscot Joinery to demolish a former church building in Castletown, Caithness, and build four blocks of flats comprising 16 houses.

Built in 1843, the church building has been described as an example of a double gabled church in the Caithness style.

There were no objections from any of the public agencies or the public and the Castletown Community Council welcomed the development of much needed low cost housing in the town.

One of the recommendations in granting the application was that the developer used local stone in the detailing of the building.
