Huntly Shop Enhancement Scheme launched

Full details about this new scheme available here.


Huntly is recognised as having both a beautiful historic town centre and a wide range of interesting individual shops. Such qualities make Huntly a very pleasant place to shop in this era of ‘clone towns’. Keeping our town centre attractive benefits all businesses in the town by retaining existing customers and encouraging new ones. However, maintaining and improving shop premises costs money. This leaflet presents details of the Huntly Shop Enhancement Scheme (HSES), which aims to help businesses in Huntly keep the town centre an attractive place to shop.
