“Seismic” was a word used by Colin last night in Nairn Academy in connection with the South Nairn events of last Wednesday the 18th of September. Gurnites will be aware that prior to the notice of amendment that he put to the PED committee Nairn South had gone through without a vote although with some conditions added including a pause and review after 100 houses. That was to be overturned dramatically though after protestors took to the streets last week.
The editorial of this week’s Nairnshire Telegraph states: “It was an inquiry by this newspaper in the wake of the South Planning Committee, made to the vice chair of the committee regarding the ignoring of local community council objections, which kicked off the process leading to last week’s site meeting. However we do not take much pleasure in seeing the council and its planning department getting such a drubbing.”
Another erudite editorial in this week's local paper and well worth reading if you haven't had a chance to do so yet.
