Developers say feedback shows 91% support for Lidl led retail gateway to Nairn

The development company behind plans for further retail development in Nairn has announced details of feedback received from its public consultation event held in the Nairn Community Centre on 26th September.

A spokesman for Ziran Land said:
"We were very pleased with the level of interest in our proposals and estimate 200 or more visitors to our public exhibition event. From the 110 feedback forms received to date, we currently have 91% support and 9% unsupportive or undecided. We also had a very good attendance at our exhibition preview and we estimate some 20 or so community councillors from across Nairn and other community leaders attended. Concerns over the future of Nairn town centre were voiced and other important considerations including the proposed Nairn by-pass also added to the debate."

Ziran Land's consultants will be meeting with planners at The Highland Council later this month for pre-application discussions prior to the planning application being lodged in November.

I bet lidl s will have to do landscaping and planting around their store, or agree to it before they get planning permission.
But just across the road is the eyesore that is the balmakieth industrial estate. These businesses should have to pay for trees etc. to hide these ugly buildings, they are getting free advertising at the expense of the look of the place.
