Two independent parts of the current Wick Pulteneytown Conservation Area were originally designated by Caithness County Council with effect from 26/01/1970. These were Argyle Square (Area 1) and The Round House and houses fronting Harbour Terrace and Harbour Place (Area 3). A third area of Wick around the old parish church (Area 2) was also designated at this time. The designation was formally published in the Edinburgh Gazette on 26/01/1970. Following the production of a Conservation Area Character Appraisal in the late 1990s, the conservation area was redesignated with effect from 08/05/2001 to encompass a larger single area as 'Wick- Pulteneytown' and the area around the old church was de-designated.
A Conservation Area Character Appraisal was carried out in 2019-2020 which recommended the enlargement of the area. The changes were agreed and adopted by the Highland Council (as de-designation and simultaneous re-designation) with effect from 01/09/2021. A Conservation Area Management Plan was also produced. The simultaneous cancellation of the existing Conservation Area and re-designation of the new one was published in the Edinburgh Gazette on 08/10/2021.
