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:
including Health, Education, Leisure, and Recreation
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
