Forres one step ahead of Nairn on town centre regeneration matters?

Recently we had the news that NICE had sourced 10K from the Scottish Government to take Nairn town centre plans forward.  Are folk in the neighbouring town  just 10 minutes along the A96  thinking bigger and acting faster however?

"Jump in the CARS and head for £2.9 million" is the splash in this week's Forres Gazette.

The paper goes on to say: "Businesses are being urged to sign up to the Forres CARS (Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme) project. 

It is estimated that funding totalling £2.9 million could be made available to boost the town centre, if partners come on board to make up match funding." 

More in this week's Forres Gazette, lots that will resonate with gurnites concerned about town centre affairs and worth a look, hopefully it will go online at some point.
