Next steps for Nairn South Masterplan
Nairn South Masterplan will be considered at a future meeting of the Nairnshire Area Committee to allow further time to fully consider comments received.
The item presenting feedback from the consultation on the Transport Appraisal for Nairn South was scheduled to be considered at the next Nairnshire Committee meeting. However, due to the breadth of issues raised in comments received and the need to fully consider these, whilst also seeking views from the transport consultants who carried out the appraisal, the item will be referred to a future meeting. Members will then be asked to agree the Council position on the issues raised and the next steps in preparing the Nairn South Masterplan.
Whilst there has been some slippage in timescales, the commitment to prepare the Nairn South Masterplan remains a requirement of the Inner Moray Firth Local Development Plan Action Programme and will be prepared by the Council. This work, when complete, will guide any future development on this site and put us in a strong position to determine any application for development.
Nairnshire Committee Chair Cllr Michael Green said: “I am delighted the Council is taking adequate time to investigate, analyse and reflect on the large number of responses received from the Nairn Community.”
