Introduction from Sir Anthony Cleaver
Welcome to the website of the Caithness & North Sutherland Regeneration Partnership.
CNSRP is a partnership of the main public sector bodies with a remit to address the socio-economic effects of decommissioning at the Dounreay site. The partners are: Highlands & Islands Enterprise, The Highland Council, The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, Skills Development Scotland, The Scottish Government and Dounreay Site Restoration Ltd. My role as independent Chairman is to work with the senior executives of the partners to drive forward our strategic priorities.
Our strategic aim is “to maintain and if possible to increase the GDP of the Dounreay travel to work area by actively working to promote existing employment, encourage new employment and promote the area as an attractive location in which to live and work.”
The Caithness & North Sutherland Action Plan 2007 – 2010 provided a framework for the delivery of actions designed to broaden the economy away from its reliance on decommissioning work at Dounreay. During that period over 80 local businesses committed to creating or retaining over 500 jobs.
We are now delivering a Delivery Plan for 2011-2014, and this website is an important part of keeping you informed about our progress: I do hope you find it useful, and that you will return often to seek information on our activities.
