There are three Community Council meetings this week, two in the town and one in Auldearn, where current controversial issues will be debated – a chance for you to add your say to the mix and/or find out details of what you can do to further influence things.
There are two meetings on Wednesday night (11th Dec), one in the town and one in Auldearn. River Community Council will be holding their usual monthly meeting in the URC hall at 7.30 p.m. Their agenda includes the Nairn South Development, A96 Dualling/Bypass options and the Nairn Traffic Management systems. The Gurn understands that at sometime during the last week the town’s three community councils met with Charles Allenby’s agents to discuss matters concerning his proposed development at Nairn South – the substance of that meeting will no doubt be revealed on Wednesday.
Out at Auldearn on Wednesday night too (11th Dec) in the Lethen Road hall, the village’s Community Council will discuss the A96 Bypass dualling plans and bill their meeting as:
“Informal information meeting with detailed plans of all routes on show. Come and view the proposals and the consequences for the locality.”
The plans are on display from 6.30 p.m. and an informal round table discussion begins at 7.30 p.m. Gurnites that have seen the maps of the various routes will know that they all have considerable consequences for the areas around the village.
On Thursday Night (12th Dec) the Westies (Nairn West CC) meet in the Community Centre at 7.30 p.m. and they have a very full agenda. Here it is:
1. Apologies for Absence
2. Minutes of last meeting
3. Matters Arising
5. Treasurer’s Report
6. Police Report
7. Presentation on Windfarms (Cairn Duhie) by Dick Ruane
8. Inner Moray Firth Development Plan
9. By-pass and Dualling of A96
10. Community Empowerment Consultation
11. Nairn South
12. Town Centre
13. Common Good
14. Planning Applications
15. Any Other Business
16. Date and time of next meeting
A considerable amount of business then for the Westies to get through. Next week will see discussion at the three different meetings on topics that have stimulated quite a lot of comment on the Gurn. This week sees your chance to take your views to these public meetings.
