As reported previously River CC surveyed every home in Broadhill to find out views on Highland Council's proposal to turn off every other street light.
The results and subsequent comments from parties involved are reported in today's Nairnshire Telegraph - the front page spread infact. 70 homes were surveyed and 37 responses with 30 against and 7 for. The Gurn can reveal that since then Tommy Hogg, the survey coordinator has received another 7 responses and all were against.
Thats a total of 44 responses, 37 against and 7 for. That's a 63% turnout for the River CC survey and this observer would speculate that that is the kind of response marketing people can only dream of. Tommy went on to tell the Gurn today that some residents were very angry that they had been singled out by Highland Council for such treatment and comments made on some of the survey forms have revealed extreme disatisfaction with the Council. Looks like the powers that be have made a mistake with this one. Time for an apology to Broadhill? Tommy said that he will be making a list of the comments (without revealing the names of the authors) and presenting it to his fellow councillors at the next meeting of River CC.
