People in Nairn to have their say on Community Council merger

Not the full ménage à trois to give us something that one day might resemble the old District Council perhaps (River CC are still against that) but the Westies and the Subbies hope to live together in happy municipal matrimony after "living in sin" with dual meetings for a while now. Below is a Highland Council press release:

"A consultation meeting will take place on Thursday 21 May at 7pm in Nairn Academy to consider the proposed merger of two Nairn Community Councils.

Nairn Suburban and Nairn West Community Councils have put forward proposals to The Highland Council (the administrating body) to merge the two into one Community Council. 

Work has been ongoing locally by the two Community Councils to progress the merger but this meeting is an opportunity for the community to have their say on the proposals.

Nairn is also represented by Nairn River Community Council which is not involved in this proposal.

Following the consultation meeting, a report will go forward to the next meeting of The Highland Council on 25 June for Members to consider the proposal.

If the merger is approved, the two Community Councils will merge following an election in November, when elections will be held for all Community Councils in Highland."

So citizens of Gurnshire, if any resident of these two areas can show just cause, why they may not lawfully be joined together, let them speak on May 21st or else thereafter forever hold their piece.

Really think that the council needs to run an on-line consultation on this issue.
Very easy to do - and better than a few folk in a room ............ - after all Corrie is on tonight!
How do we make sure that the folk in the West End don't lord it over the folk who live in the "New West End" (Tradespark/Achareidh)?
