We’ve already posted an article this week on the criticism that the Nairn Common Good monitoring statement received on Tuesday at the N,B&S area committee meeting in Kinguissie. There was a call for the committee to seek “independent legal opinion on to any legal wriggle room “ on some of the Common Good leases.
Gurnites may also remember an article from June this year when Liz expressed her frustration with certain Common Good issues - Article here: “.And it was all stitched up in District Council days and it is very disheartening.”
At the end of the discussion on the Common Good on Tuesday Liz reflected on the best way forward. Since then she tells the Gurn that she has sought the advice of the the Council’s Director of Legal Services on any options and the outcomes with regard to the leases. She told us that Independent Legal Advice would cost around £120 per hour and wouldn't be in the remit of the area committee anyway although they can make recommendations that could be followed up. Despite the present limits of the area committees Liz remains confident that they will eventually achieve a lot and says she is very happy that they have been created.
