Local Place Plan

The Local Place Plan meeting, “A Deliverable Vision for Nairn”, on 10 November was attended by around 130 people.  Reporting on the meeting in an email to local Councillors, NWSCC Chairman said, “We all agreed that Nairnshire has vast potential with a lot of untapped resources and that we need a clear Vision of what Nairnshire should be. All present supported working together to deliver this Vision.
There was unanimous support for taking forward a properly funded LPP to ensure it reflected the genuine views and interests of Nairnshire residents and that the current potentially damaging and unsatisfactory IMFLDP for Nairn should be halted until an LPP is produced in 2023. 
There was also unanimous support for asking all our Councillors to delay approval of the IMFLDP at the 15th November Area Committee Meeting to allow the community to progress a fully considered LPP in 2023 which will then underpin a community-supported Local Development Plan.”  Keynote slide presentation is linked here.
