Town Centre

Your town centre, including Heritage Conservation and Tourist Welcome

We would love to know your vision for a future Nairn town centre. Would your town centre have a pedestrianised Brae? Would you have a weekly market? How would you incorporate our architectural history, from the Italianate School Building and the Court House to the extended High Street route down into the Fishertown?

We would love to know what you think, and how you would link the Town Centre through the other key themes grown from the Initial Community Survey:

Community Amenities

including Health, Education, Leisure, and Recreation

Getting Around

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

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

  1. Wouldn’t be NICE if if they applied for the funds that are available to install a ramp at the Firhall Bridge. Something I was told when making enquires about funding but would have to be applied for by A organized group
    First of all the bridge platform is wide Enough to allow wheelchairs to get across
    2 The only requirement would be a RAMP something the Armey are willing to design and install given the cost of material and authority to do the job. something that was granted previously when they were prepared to do the job but they were given the wrong information regarding Exter weight be adding to the bridge. The fact that removal of the water pipe was removed lessoned the weight and made the platform wider. Therefore the only requirement is the ramp up on to the platform, The bridge requires no alterations and my own opinion is A ramp would be part of the path leading up onto the platform as is the case at the Jubilee Bridge .
    If this can’t be considered something to help everyone to cross and enjoy the advertised riverside walk

  2. Sorry posted before completing my previous letter
    I would verry much appreciate A reply to my letter. As to why a RAMP
    would not be undertaken as one of your projects
