Last night are River CCs regular meeting in the URC hall Fred Holmes said to his colleagues:
“Can I say something about the West and Suburban Community Councils? As you have probably read in the Nairnshire, they are taking forward proposals, ideas and requesting Freedom of Information concerning the Slide, the embankment, the seagulls. As these things are all pertaining to Nairn, not just one particular area, can we as a Community Council fully back the West and Suburban Councils?”
Brian Stewart from the Westies was present, he said:
“I think it is welcome if all three community councils, in a sense join forces, and make the views of our residents plain to the local authority. On the gulls and the pigeons, which is not a freedom of information thing, it’s really, it’s something that comes up every year on all our councils in one way or another. We have recurrently urged the council to take a lead in coordinating some kind of strategy to control and ultimately get rid of the gulls.”
On the big slide issue Simon Noble said: “I have heard from a number of residents, total dismay at the removal of the slide, not only that but also complete removal of the mound where the slide originally was and a number of people have expressed total bemusement as to why the mound was then dismantled in the way that it was after the slide was taken away and after there was a furore about that.”
River CC members agreed unanimously to back their West and Suburban colleagues.
