Supporting the Sainsbury's food store planning application

The Gurn urges all readers to support this application. It's simple we need more places where we can buy food! It costs to drive to Inverness and Forres so another supermarket is long overdue in the town. Staying in town to do your weekly shop has to be the greener option! There would be a few jobs in it too. There will be a special hearing of the outline planning application:

10.30, 3rd  June at Nairn Community Centre

Why not go along and show your support if not for Sainsbury's themselves then simply for the right to have the shopping facilities that other towns have. If you want to write in and express your views to the planning department then you can write to:

Mr David Mudie
Team Leader, Development Management
Planning and Development Services
The Highland Council

I agree fully with the Gurn's analysis on this subject, time for another supermarket, long overdue !
I hope your readers back the move and make it known .

Hi newnews, thanks for that. We'll give it prominence but will have to confirm from elsewhere as you are unknown to the Gurn.
If the venue has changed it could be a bit tight in there even if a few dozen supporters were to turn up. There might be more room in the Community Centre?
