Photograph of Caithness and North Sutherland Regeneration PartnershipThe Caithness And North Sutherland Regeneration Partnership was formed as part of the need to find new ways of develping the local economy with the rundown and decommissioning of nuclear facilities at Dounreay in Caithness.

To help guide the delivery of the Action Plan the partnership has three groupings: an Advisory Board, an Executive Board and a Senior Officers' Group. The Advisory Board comprises a range of local organisations, and offers comments on the delivery of the Plan, as well as guidance on the ongoing direction of the process we have embarked upon. It is Chaired by the Convener of The Highland Council. The Executive Board comprises the Chief Executives of the main partners (The Highland Council, Highlands & Islands Enterprise and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority) as well as a senior representative from the Scottish Government's Enterprise Division. The Chair of this group is Sir Anthony Cleaver. The Senior Officers' Group comprises the key local area managers/ directors from the partners (HIE Area Manager, Highland Council Corporate Manager, DSRL Managing Director). It checks on detailed delivery issues relating to the Plan.

For more details and actions or updates each month see the partnership web site.
