Rosemary Young wants to see the decision reversed at the meeting on the 18th that will discuss the Highland Council planning department's mistake - a mistake that means the South Nairn application must be debated again, she is quoted in today's edition of the Inverness Courier:
"I think there is very little chance unless the people of this town get behind their community council. There's 10,000 people in this town and if they don't want this being built they have to make their voices louder," she said."
An article with pictures is on page 7 of the Courier today. There is comment from an SNP Councillor in the article but not one of our local ones Liz or Colin, Richard Laird the SNP member for Inverness Central is quoted. Last night on twitter he told the Gurn that he had commented to the paper:
@GurnNurn I have some strong views on the matter, but they will need to wait until the debate at the PED Committee.
