The Gurn can reveal that the Nairn Concerned Residents' Group have submitted an objection to the Woolies town houses planning application for Water Lane. The NCRG was born of the controversy surrounding the Maggot Road flats and went on to join the fight against the 550 houses on Sandown. The Gurn further understands that they will give evidence at the Sandown Public Inquiry whenever the date is set by the Scottish Government.
If you also want to help stop over development in Water Lane then there is still time to get involved. Make no mistake Gurnites, if this planning application is approved then anything could happen anywhere in Nairn!
You can make an online objection on this webpage. It seems to accept comments but if you click onto the tab to read the comments it won't allow you to do so (IE7 anyway). The Gurn has published details of the plans and they are also available in the Courthouse. Why not take a walk down Water Lane and see for yourself the impact this development will have.There it is Gurnites, it is worth considering supporting your fellow citizens because such a planning application could affect your area next.Those concerned about this development have until Tuesday the 1st of September to register their objections that's only 5 Days
