- The Ward Forum: HC’s latest presentation
The principal subject on the regular Ward Forum agenda on 26 January was the future of Nairn Town Centre. The meeting has been reported in detail in the local “Nairnshire Telegraph”. Council officials acknowledged, but did not fully accept, the ideas and input that had come forward not only from NICE working groups but also from others in the town. In his presentation the Council planner, Tim Stott, listed the elements in the NICE proposals which he and others (such as Transport Scotland) found useful, and then identified a number of criticisms of the early versions of the plans prepared by NICE. He then revealed, for the first time to the Nairn public, the latest version (“Option 3”) of the Council’s proposed plan (See THC3 right). This has since been printed in the 1 Feb Nairnshire Telegraph.
