Tomorrow morning we will know who the new Provost will be as the four Highland Councillors meet in the Courthouse to pick a new civic leader for the town. Liz is giving the job up because she doesn't want it to be political. She also has a new job as the "political leader" of the Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey area.
Wednesday starts with a demonstration against the South Nairn development that will meet at the Railway Station at 08.30 a.m. and then go up to the site to wait for the bus load of councillors that will come from Inverness. Then quite a few folk plan a further demo as the item gets discussed through in Glenurquhart Road from 11.00 a.m. onwards. A job for our new Provost then to speak out for the people of Nairn on Wednesday or would that be a "political" act? No doubt our local members will have something to say but one Councillor who won't contributing to the debate will be Liz due to legal advice.
Following the demo and the meeting in Inverness, there will be either a wake or a party in the form of a Combined Community Council meeting of the town's three watchdog organisations at 07.30 in the evening. It will be quite a day. For more information about the South Nairn issue and articles that give more details on Liz's situation etc, have a browse on this page. The former Provost's difficulty with the South Nairn issue is also outlined in this Courier article here
