Active Travel, safe and accessible paths and pavements, convenient buses, parking, and sorting out our traffic issue!
We would love to hear your thoughts on Getting Around in Nairn. Does everything hinge on a successful by-pass? What else could we do to maximise non-automotive transport through Nairnshire and link into the wider Highlands and Moray Active Travel provision? Should we have an integrated cycle route, from the High Street to Inverness, Forres, or Grantown-on-Spey? How do we get around town, whether on foot, pushing the buggy, or with a mobility device – does your route keep you off the road?
We would love to know what you think, and how you would lace Getting Around through the other key themes grown from the Initial Community Survey:
including Heritage Conservation and Tourist Welcome
including Health, Education, Leisure, and Recreation
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
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
