Nairn River CC represents around 5600 residents of Fishertown, High Street, Lochloy, Merryton, Balmakeith, Broadhill, Boathpark,Househill, Queenspark and Mill Road areas .If you are not sure if you live in our patch see the map of Nairn River territory
Nairn West and Suburban Community Council represents the rest of the former Nairn \’Royal Burgh\’
A Community Council is a \’statutory consultee\’, with a public duty to monitor all Highland Council Planning and Licensing applications in our area and submit comments as required to reflect the concerns and best interests of local residents.
Community Councillors are elected by the public but unlike Highland Councillors who are paid – they are volunteers and do this work in their own time.
Nairn\’s 4 elected Highland Councillors Laurie Fraser, Tom Heggie, Liz Macdonald and Peter Saggers are ex-officio members of the Community Council which means they can attend but do not vote.
You will find latest information on our meetings and activities here online, in the Nairnshire Telegraph and on public noticeboards at Castle Square, the Library and Community and Arts Centre.
We are working hard on improving communication with the local community to make sure that your voice is heard and that your views and needs are fully reflected in local authority Plans
Please contact members anytime with your local concerns and questions and tell us what you think about local housing, infrastructure (roads, drains, sewerage), public services and amenities in the Nairn River area.
