A festive planning dish - an application to discuss over the mince pies and drams?

Serious students of planning applications in Nairn may wish to head over the Highland Council's e-planning site to browse  an application to "Erect Housing development of 24 Affordable units, with roads and associated infrastructure at Lawrie Drive, Nairn."

A new scheme to bolt onto the existing developments at Lochloy then. You can find it here. complete with maps. The developer is the Albyn Housing Society Ltd.

In recent years there has been much discussion about who actually gets to live in new social housing that is constructed in Nairn. Here is some debate that we reported on in June of 2011. There is also a school of thought that suggests the best way forward to ensure the community decides who gets to live in new social housing would be to create a Nairn Housing Trust that would build houses itself.

Either way, whatever your views, anyone that might wish to make comments on this planning application may wish to do so before falling into the festive slumber in front of the television after the Christmas Dinner.

Will this application be advertised in the Nairnshire Telegraph?

Might we expect a spate of road naming dedicated to our councillors past and present post Lawrie Drive?
