Councillor John Holden is quoted in this mornings P&J:
'Bearing in mind Nairn's proposed expansion, I feel it is essential that this development is given the go-ahead. This would give Nairn a much-needed level of competition and service. I urge my colleagues to be brave and bold and support this application unanimously.'
On the subject of the move of the meeting from the Community Centre to the Courthouse the P&J quotes a spokesman for the Council:
'Asked why the the venue for Tuesday's 10am meeting had been switched at late notice from the spacious Community Centre to the cramped Courthouse building, he said: 'Because the community centre was not available.' It was unclear who else had hired the venue.'
As the Gurn has said before, it may get very crowded if a sizeable proportion of this project's protagonists turn up on the day.
