THREE public sessions will be held in February about the Lerwick Lanes masterplan project – with the team from 7N Architects set to present the results of a recent online survey.

Folk will also be able to hear more about the emerging masterplan, which is due to be completed by the end of March.

The architect firm is also keen to get further feedback from anyone who may have views on the project.

Shetland Islands Council’s executive manager for housing Anita Jamieson: “We’re very grateful to everyone who contributed to the survey, and this is the next stage in the team’s public consultation on to identify potential options for this area of the town.

“This is very much a work in progress, so anyone who may have thoughts to share still has an opportunity to contribute to the process.”

The first public event will take place on Monday 5 February between 12pm – 4pm at the Islesburgh Community Centre radio room, with people able to drop in.

Another drop-in event will be held between 5pm and 7pm the same day at Lerwick Town Hall.

There will also be a presentation at a meeting of Lerwick Community Council at the town hall later that evening from 7pm.
