See also the previous article from Dave W gurning about the lack of advertising for the A96 workshop consultation today in the Courthouse with BEAR and transport Scotland. Liz tells the Gurn that she has asked the representatives present to come back again as the event had not been advertised properly. Apparently there was an advert in the Highland News but nothing in the Nairnshire Telegraph. The Association of Nairn Businesses got wind of the event and posted information on their site last night but I'm sure David Brownless will agree that his organisation's digital journal is not as widely read as the local paper.
Liz said that Council officials provided all the information as to where to advertise but nothing appeared in the Leopold Street Thunderer. She requested a re-run of the workshop after proper advertising has appeared, the mannie in the Courthouse agreed so it looks as though they'll be another chance for us all to air our views. Liz also told us that although BEAR say they don't get many complaints about the A96 and the traffic lights the subject crops up constantly at Community Council meetings and in conversations with her constituents in Nairn and beyond. Given the concern in the town Liz thinks a properly advertised consultation would attract a lot of people.
