NICE was formed in 2010 to facilitate the regeneration of Nairn Town Centre and its surrounding areas. NICE is recognised by the Scottish Government as a Community Body under the “Right to Buy” legislation, and continues to identify robust business cases to fund the purchase of properties so that relevant “community assets” can be retained and enhanced for the benefit of the local community.

Since 2015, NICE has been working hard to support and develop Nairn, from facilitating the Town Centre Plan, laying the ground work for the Business Improvement District (Nairn’s ‘BID’), and in 2020, incorporating Team Hamish within the legal structure.

In 2023 NICE launched the Local Place Plan consultation. The Nairn Local Place Place is your opportunity to make Nairn your Nairn in the Local Place Plan. The Local Place Plan is incorporated to the Inner Moray Firth Local Development Plan, securing the future for Nairn. Leading the project is the Steering Group, and your LPP Project Coordinator.
