Councillors representing the Wick and East Caithness ward agreed to give £325 to Helen Stirling Maps to produce a graphic featuring text, images and a map of the town centre to supplement the local project being undertaken by the charity organisation Sustrans.

In the months before the coronavirus emergency, staff from Sustrans had been holding consultation events to bring together ideas for town centre regeneration and had begun looking at potential design frameworks.
