Sandown not for sale says Sandy

From the Highland Council website:

'The Highland Council has today ( 28 June 2010) confirmed that there is no new sales marketing campaign for the sale of land at Sandown Nairn and that Deveron Homes remain the preferred bidder for development of the land.
As agreed, at the Council’s recent Planning, Environment and Development Committee development at Sandown continues to be supported subject to a review of the development potential of the site. This follows the recent appeal decision by the Scottish Government’s Reporters which upheld the Council’s decision to refuse planning permission for Deveron Homes’ initial proposal.
Councillor Sandy Park, Convener of The Highland Council said: “I am extremely concerned about the inaccurate information circulating at present about the sale of Sandown land. It is currently under offer to Deveron Homes and we want to work with the company and the community to deliver an acceptable scheme. As future proposals come forward Deveron Homes have got to carry out pre-application community consultations in line with new planning legislation and we look forward to local people getting involved in that process.”
Perhaps the Highland Council should send a copy of the press release to this web site?
