Following our public consultations, including our Road Show and Online Consultation, key themes have emerged, including:

  • Business and Jobs
  • Getting Around
  • Town & Village Centres
  • Geen Space & Leisure
  • Sustainable Futures

Join your Nairn and Nairnshire Local Place Plan community group discussion on Business and Jobs on Wednesday 15th May, from 6pm – 9pm in the Nairn Community & Arts Centre Conference Room to discuss the Key Ideas emerging, and what can the Local Place Plan do within a workshop environment.

Key ideas may include:

    • Conservation Areas – ensuring quality, and using these as a vehicle for funding (e.g. CARS etc)
    • Building Reuse – reference to Scottish Housing Investment Programme
      • Homes
      • Community hub
      • Coworking hub
      • Creative spaces
      • Market
    • Central homes
      • Above shops, empty buildings, allocating central sites
      • Densify areas around community infrastructure (i.e. transport, shops, health)
    • Facilities – locating centrally. Use relocation policy to draw footfall etc into the town centre.
      • Library retention in central location
    • Policy limiting out of town development – connecting to jobs and business growth

Open spaces are strictly limited to 30 open attendances. There will be key invitiees, including some local community group figures, Highland Council officers, Planning Aid Scotland team, and the Local Place Plan team attending. Please book your place to avoid disappointment.
