River CC vote against houses on land next to the Vets on St Ninian Road

Tonight River CC voted 7-1 to support local residents who have objected to a proposal to build two houses on land next to the present Veterinary Clinic in St Ninian road. Here's the application on the Highland Council e-planning site.

Aghhh ! Change, progress, something new, oh no ! But wait a minute lets put a stop to this sort of nonsence in Nairn, lets object.

I would expect no less. Pathetic !

According to what's written on the e planning pages under possible constraints; these proposals appear to be in a conservation area with B and C listed buildings. I also note the presence of the term Airport Safeguarding Zone.

Representations made include loss of sunlight and being overlooked; loss of flowerbeds and trees; proposals not in keeping with the conservation area; potential to exacerbate parking issues already associated with the area; concern that they may be a risk of flooding to existing properties.

People are entitled to raise issues of concern and it is the job of a robust and fair planning system to balance any competing (and often conflicting) demands.

Change, by the way, is the only constant. And I am sure we all have a different view as to what precisely constitutes progress.
