Tain Town Centre Action Plan

Invitation

The Highland Council would like to invite you to a public event that is taking place on Wednesday 7th May, 9.15am – 7pm and Thursday 8th May, 9.15am to 7.30pm at the Church Hall of Tain Parish Church, Queen Street, Tain to find the best ways of improving Tain Town Centre.  The purpose of the event is to gather everyone’s ideas for regenerating the town centre and to help draw up an Action Plan for the future.  Participants will be asked for their views on issues such as how best to increase footfall, improve the environment, how buildings are used and how people travel.  The Action Plan will help to plan for the future of the town centre to ensure it remains a unique and an attractive place where people want to spend time.

Thanks to funding secured from the Scottish Government the event will be facilitated by specialist designers and surveyors from the Halcrow Group (part of CH2M Hill) who will lead people through this exciting two-day event.

The enclosed leaflet sets out details of the event and further information can be found on our website at: www.highland.gov.uk/actionplans.  We are also encouraging people to give us their initial thoughts on the priorities for the town centre in advance of the event by answering the 2 questions on our online questionnaire also available on the link above.  

We have invited a wide range of stakeholders from the local community, public, private and third sectors, however we encourage you to circulate these to anyone you think may be interested.  Please let us know if you are interested in attending, in part or full, by responding to this invitation.  Alternatively, please turn up on the day.  Remember to tell us what you think in advance by submitting your answers to our online questionnaire at www.highland.gov.uk/actionplans

We would value your contribution and your help to make this a comprehensive and effective Action Plan for the future success of Tain Town Centre.

Yours sincerely, Scott Dalgarno, Development Plans Manager, The Highland Council
