Tommy Hogg enlightened the meeting last night as to what had happened to three submissions from River CC to planning applications. An increasingly frustrated Tommy had made great efforts to find out what had happened to material submitted that Highland Council had trouble in finding in the system. After all, it reflects personally on the member responsible for submitting the material when it cannot be found by the organisation at the other end. It is easy for casual observers to consider that perhaps the submissions had not been posted in such instances.
After requesting a meeting to hammer out just what was going on an official finally realised what had happened and put the Council's collective hand's up. The Highland Council planning department had been sending out material on paper with an old letter head that should have been destroyed. The Community Council submissions had gone to what was literally a 'dead' letter box.
