People in Nairn to have their say on Community Council merger

A consultation meeting will take place on Thursday 21 May at 7pm in Nairn Academy to consider the proposed merger of two Nairn Community Councils.

Nairn Suburban and Nairn West Community Councils have put forward proposals to The Highland Council (the administrating body) to merge the two into one Community Council.  

Work has been ongoing locally by the two Community Councils to progress the merger but this meeting is an opportunity for the community to have their say on the proposals.

Nairn is also represented by Nairn River Community Council which is not involved in this proposal.

Following the consultation meeting, a report will go forward to the next meeting of The Highland Council on 25 June for Members to consider the proposal.

If the merger is approved, the two Community Councils will merge following an election in November, when elections will be held for all Community Councils in Highland.
