Elgin has been selected for a major redesign exercise as part of a national regeneration programme.
The Public Design Charrette is an intensive consultation that engages local people in the design of their community.
Planning and design workshops will be held in St Giles Church in Elgin to discuss the future of two key recreation areas in Moray.
The local community, designers and specialists will work together to prepare a long-term vision for the Lossie Green and Cooper Park, with ideas for an action plan and development framework translated into plans and drawings.
Moray Council and the Moray Economic Partnership (MEP) are promoting the exercise, with a design consultancy team led by Austin-Smith: Lord and Douglas Wheeler Associates, property consultants Ryden, Transport Planning Ltd and Wave.
Councillor John Cowe, chairman of MEP, said: “It’s aimed to involve residents, actually sitting down with the experts and trying to plan a future for the city centre of Elgin, which I think something that is badly needed.”
The consultation will run from March 2 for four days.
