Central Elgin Regeneration: Public Design Charrette
A consultant team has been appointed by The Moray Council, on behalf of the Moray Economic Partnership, to facilitate a public design charrette for Central Elgin. A charrette is an intensive consultation that engages local people in the design of their community. The fundamental aim is to involve local residents, business, and stakeholders in planning the future of Central Elgin. The charrette will be part funded by the Scottish Government through their Charrette Mainstreaming Programme 2014-15.
Planning and Design workshops were held at St Giles Church over a four day period running from 2-5 March 2015. The local community, designers and specialists worked together to prepare a long term vision, development framework and action plan for the Lossie Green and Cooper Park area. The Public Design Charrette follows on from the mini-charrette held in March 2014.
A report back session on 19 March at St Giles Church provided a final opportunity to hear a presentation of the proposals and agree next steps. The vision, development framework, and action plan that has emerged from the charrette will be published over the coming months.
NEW Sept 2015 The Central Elgin Regeneration : Public Design Charrette – Final Report which is supplemented by a ‘Property Market Report’ and ‘Lossie Green Development Appraisal’, was endorsed by The Council’s Economic Development and Infrastructure Services Committee in August 2015, and will be reported to the Moray Economic Partnership in September 2015.
The Charrette document includes Action Programmes, identifying projects for implementation over the next 10 years, comprising short term (1-2 years), medium term (3-5 years), and longer term(6-10 years). From these, work on an Action Plan of projects for delivery over the 12 month period until August 2016 has commenced.
