SEPA (Scottish Environment Protection Agency) is looking to improve the quality of water in Scotland by 2015. As such it has drawn up plans for each district (We are North Highland). SEPA is asking for public feedback on each of the Area Management Plans.
They have highlighted an issue which particularly effects Nairn, that of the A96 Growth Corridor Development
Case Study: Development pressures and strategic planning – A96 corridor
Development pressure in the inner Moray Firth has been increasing over the last few decades and has become particularly acute around the East Inverness area. The A96 Growth Corridor Development Framework sets out the long-term planning strategy for this area. One of the key pressure points is the A96
Water Treatment Works to keep pace with planned development. Longer term, incorporating the developments around Nairn will include a new Wastewater (sewage) Treatment Works.
