Nairn’s town centre is identified as having potential development opportunity across mixed uses: housing; business; retail; and community. Potential for 20 new houses is identified over an area of 4.6. Reference Inner Moray Firth Local Development Plan 2, page 280.
The Inner Moray Firth Local Development Plan 2 identifies the Town Centre development area as the area between the A96 and the High Street, framed to the North by St Ninian Road (A96) and to the South by Leopold Street, and extending to include the Fire Station and bus station as far as this ground bounds onto Viewfield.
Is this how you view the Town Centre? Do you think the High Street experience should extend down Harbour Street to the harbour shops, café and restaurant, and encompass the remaining commercial activity here? Perhaps the High Street experience needs to extend to the harbour to aid mobility through the town, from the train station to the beach?
Can the Town Centre be enhanced to foster Active Travel within a Green, Resilient Nairn whilst attracting and promoting employment and business growth?
