THURSO could be in line to get some extra town centre car parking if plans to redevelop Olrig Street playing fields bear fruit.

The tennis courts, putting green, children’s play park and greenhouses have been included in a consultation exercise carried out by Thurso Community Development Trust.

Proposals mooted include the conversion of the double tennis court into car parking and the development of a men’s shed along with a creative arts studio.

Councillor Karl Rosie said: "The tennis courts could be a relatively low-cost transformation to much-needed town centre car parking and an additional opportunity exists to relocate the bus shelter on Olrig Street with more appropriate shelter and seating being provided at this location.

Mr Rosie believes the developnment would also help bring visitors to the town centre while enjoying the North Coast 500 route.
