Pettifer estates very disappointed that the planning officials have recommended the Sainsbury's application for refusal!

The Gurn can reveal that Pettifer estates are urging supporters of the Sainsbury's planning application to contact their local councillors to express their support for the proposed supermarket in the face of the recommendation for refusal and they state in their letter to supporters:

'Our proposals for a new Sainsbury’s food store and retail units at Balmakeith, Nairn
Please note that The Highland Council have informed us of a change of time and venue for the Hearing to consider our outline planning application.
Date: Tuesday 3 June 2008
Updated Time: 10.15am
Updated Venue: The Courthouse, High Street, Nairn

Although we are very disappointed that the planning officials have recommended our application for refusal we will be putting our case to councillors at the Hearing on Tuesday since it will be they who ultimately make the decision.
It is important that elected members of the council are aware of local support for our plans and it would be very helpful if you could convey your support to your local councillor before
Tuesday’s Hearing. Contact details can be found at

So fellow citizens, if you want more choice it is up to you, contact any or all of your four local Nairn councillors before it is too late and above all, turn up at the Courthouse. A source close to the Gurn has said that the meeting starts at 1000 so that would be a good time to arrive.
