In November the Nairnshire Community Councils (including Croy CC) wrote to Highland Council’s Chief Executive, Steve Barron, with a proposal for a new way of doing things in Nairnshire. They also sent a copy of their proposal to the four local councillors, our MSPs and Danny Alexander.
The proposal outlined 6 priorities for the area and a framework for more local input and scrutiny over how we are governed by the Highland Council. They also asked for the provision of project managers to take forward their “exciting plans”. The Gurn has received a copy of the proposal and serious students of these matters may wish to read the document here and decide for themselves whether these ideas have merit. It will be interesting to see if our four local councillors, particularly Liz and Colin who are members of the Glenurquhart Road ruling administration will back these proposals coming from the democratically elected grass roots CC organisations that represent Nairnshire.
