including Health, Education, Leisure, and Recreation
We would love to know your vision for the future of Nairn’s Community Amenities. How would your Health Centre and dental services best support a growing and maturing population? What should our education structure be to best attract and retain working families across Nairnshire? How do we maximise and protect our leisure facilities for the future, from the swimming pool to the library and maybe spaces or places we don’t have but might benefit from? How can our recreational facilities encourage positive community engagement across all ages – is this a pump track, or flood lights across the skate park, an improved walking route around the riverside with access for all?
We would love to know what you think, and how you would link our Community Amenities through the other key themes grown from the Initial Community Survey:
Active Travel, safe and accessible paths and pavements, convenient buses, parking, and sorting out our traffic issue!
Local Jobs and Business Growth
creating local employment, and the space to grow business in Nairnshire
Our Natural Environment
protecting our green spaces, across the beach, river, and our abundant landscape
Your town centre, including Heritage Conservation and Tourist Welcome
Underpinning these key themes, and having influence across all of our themes, clear considerations include:
- Nairn for all ages how do we retain our school leavers and young families, whilst being attractive to young working families as well as looking after our steadily rising over 60s?
- Nairn led development looking after our Common Good assets; community ownership; and local decision making
- Green/ Resilient Nairn ensuring that Nairn is ready for and adapting to our changing climate, whilst leading in low carbon development, clean employment, and renewable energies
- Infrastructure first: what do we need in terms of By-Pass, sewerage, utilities, and flood defences to support a growing town
