Breaking news - Water Lane planning application for 5 houses refused under delegated powers!

The above is an extract of the planners decision. It was refused comprehensively on many of the grounds that Water Lane residents and supporters used in their objections. (Picture should enlarge a little). It didn't even get to the council debating chamber!
Water Lane residents are grateful for the support of many individuals who gave practical advice and those who also submitted objections. Also thanks to the Nairn Concerned Citizens group and the River Community Council plus the APT group, Planning Aid Scotland and the four Highland councillors for responding to requests for meetings promptly.

This episode demonstrates once again that Nairn is a caring community, people look out for their fellow citizens if they are faced with the like of this failed over-development. It goes to show that we can preserve, and even expand our community, in a way that we want and not that out of town developers desire.
