A public meeting is to take place in Dunbar to discuss the future of the town’s high street.

Dunbar Councillor Michael Veitch is organising the meeting in association with the Dunbar Trades Association.

He said: “Dunbar’s historic high street is undoubtedly one of its greatest assets, yet regrettably it has not always received the level of care and attention it deserves. Local people have will have a keen interest in its future, and I am delighted that this public meeting has been organised.

“While open to anyone with an interest in the High Street, it is particularly aimed at businesses and residents.”

Issues likely to be raised at the meeting (6.30pm, September 10, at the Royal McKintosh Hotel) include the external appearance of buildings, the future of the areas behind the High Street, town centre parking and the future of iconic buildings such as the Corn Exchange.
