Use and adaptation of listed buildings

Forfar Academy, Angus

One of a series of best practice case studies exploring how change can be managed in listed buildings in Scotland.

An important historic building in Forfar’s town centre has now been secured for the future, with the added benefit of providing much-needed affordable homes. The project, with its focus on engagement, has helped build a new community and promoted town centre living with tenants who take pride in their homes.

These case studies are reflective of our guidance notes on the Use and Adaptation of Listed Buildings.

Find out more about the policy behind the guidance in the Historic Environment Policy for Scotland.
