Nort Natters

Public drop in Brae hall 29 November 2:30pm - 6:30pm

Nort Natters aims to hear from folk who live, work and study in the north mainland

What’s happening?

We want to hear from people who live, work, and study in the north mainland. We want to understand what the communities here want and need, now and in the future.

We want to know what you like about living here; what changes would make a difference for you and your loved ones; and how you could help bring those changes to life.

Why do we want to hear from you?

This is your opportunity to shape the future of the north mainland for yourself, your loved ones, and others who live, work and study here. It’s really important that we hear from a wide range of people. Your thoughts really matter to help create a vision for the north mainland, so please do take this opportunity to get involved in shaping the future of the north mainland.

How can you take part?

On Tuesday 29th November, a public drop-in session will take place at Brae Public Hall from 2.30pm till 6.30pm. This event is open to all. If you live, work or study in the north mainland, please come along on the 29th to see and add to the themes and ideas that have emerged from ‘Nort Natters’ so far.

The ideas and insights about life in the north mainland will be summarised and shared later this year, and will inform a range of plans and strategies across the north mainland in 2023 and beyond.

Anyone with questions can get in touch at
