Major Elgin plans to be showcased at city’s Cooper Park

PLANS for the revamp of Elgin are to be showcased this Saturday (August 28) in the city’s Cooper Park.

The Moray Council event will run from 10am until 4pm, with it allowing residents to speak directly to the team behind the plans – which include a £39 million cultural quarter, redevelopment of the park itself and improved transport routes.

A pop-up QR code trail will also be in offer. Once completed, participants will be asked for their input on the planned regeneration on South Street and High Street, down to the North Port precinct, Cooper Park and the Town Hall.

Chair of Moray Council’s economic growth, housing and environmental sustainability committee, councillor Graham Leadbitter, said, “We’ve had to delay this family event due to Covid restrictions but now we’re able to host this display so people can come down to Cooper Park and see the plans for themselves.

“I often find it helps to see the vision in that larger scale to build the picture of what the centre of Elgin could look like. It’s a great opportunity to ask your questions about the redevelopment plans and give feedback on them. We look forward to seeing everyone with an interest in regenerating Moray on August 28.”
