There’s an weighty bit of planning consultation starting today, that will go a long way to determine the shape of how Nairn and the rest of the Highland Council part of the Inner Moray Firth grows over the next two or three decades of this new millennium. There has been some media coverage already, yesterday it was on the front page of the P&J and today there is an article in the Courier.
One of our regular readers has drafted an unofficial guide to the Inner Moray Firth Local Development plan with some FAQs such as “Why should anyone bother?” and “So how can comments be submitted?” etc.
The text is offered in good faith and designed to be helpful but it has to be stressed that it is not an authoritative document: it is intended as an unofficial guide primarily to help and encourage local residents of Nairn to comment in the consultation. It does not try to cover all angles. You can read a Gurn reader’s guide to the IMFLD plan here. The Gurn understands that the plan will be discussed too at the joint community council meeting to be hosted by River CC on the 6th of November in the URC hall.
More information about the IMFLDP is available here on the Highland Council website and from Highland Council officials. A press release explaining the plan is also available on this Highland Council page.
