NICE is pleased to welcome Kenny Spink on board as Local Place Plan Coordinator for Nairnshire. He will be taking forward in early 2024 an intensive programme of public engagement across Nairnshire and beyond with help from Highland Regeneration Fund.
Kenny will be ably supported by specialist advisers, Becky Richmond (currently Black Isle Place Plan Coordinator) , Tibor Bandula (a building conservation specialist) and local website expert Ian Colquhoun.
We also have assistance from Ewen McIntosh – a Place Making officer from Highland Council and Iain Macpherson from Planning Aid Scotland. All will be ably supported by community volunteers, including senior pupils from Nairn Academy.
If you’d like to help just let us know on LPP@nicenairn.org.uk and look out for more information on nicenairn.org.uk and our Facebook page for how you can get involved to have your say on what goes in the Local Place Plan in 2024.
Local Place Plan public engagement will begin in 2024 with an ‘information download’ event for local community organisations. This will be supported by Planning Aid Scotland, who will explain how the Local Place Plan process will work and begin to explore some of the key themes emerging from our initial Local Place Plan Community Survey. Our summer survey received hundreds of responses from across Nairnshire, telling us what local people want for their place in the future (more on that on our next post).
