Thank You!

From all of the LPP team, thank you to everyone who completed an initial survey, made it along to our Roadshow, returned an online consultation, made it along to one of our events, gave some input, and who has supported the Local Place Plan consultation process so far.

Thursday night saw our final workshop event – Sustainable Futures, where we set about overlaying maps with priority spaces, identifying key actions for a sustainable Nairnshire, and creating a Nairn vision statement based on all of the inputs we have received so far.

We also met with some of the Nairn BID members at the Nairn CAB. Next week, the LPP Steering Group meets with some of our large, industrial, and commercial employers from across Grigorhill and Balmakeith and we will be updating progress to the Community Partnership.

Whilst we work on the data distillation, and Planning Aid Scotland begin authoring the draft, it was clear that everyone was united behind any development being people focused, making things better, and that future development should focus on rejuvenating and enhancing our wealth of assets from nature to the built environment.

The look ahead schedule is now:

– final group discussions and presentations in the consultation phase of the LPP development week commencing 17th May

– authoring of the draft local place plan for presentation to the LPP Steering Group late June

– public and statutory consultation from mid-July

– LPP submission deadline of 27th September

This has been an exciting and robust process and would not have been possible without your valued input. If there is anything else that is pressing and in your mind, any recent community group consultations and or any other survey results you have undertaken recently…please do send those results and findings on to us at
