Liz Cowie, assisted by Liz MacDonald got the new set-up underway at River CC in the URC hall last night.
Office bearers elected were:
John Hume Chair
Tommy Hogg vice-chair
Des Scholes Secretary
Steven Bain Treasurer
After the initial part of the meeting Liz Cowie handed over to John Hume. The newly constituted council then discussed the new session of consultations on South Nairn which the Highland Council planning department wish to move forward. Disquiet at the fact that Highland Council wished to pursue consultation at at time the the community councils had in fact been in limbo and also during the run up to the holiday period was expressed.
Other subjects debated were
Recent meeting of Scottish Water with Community Councillors.
Common Good leases.
First Steps nursery.
Painting the wee bridges on the riverside walk.
Paddling pool update from Liz - time for a completely new one?
Doggie jobbies - time for stronger bylaws?
A grit bin for the Jubilee Bridge?
Lochloy - lack of adoption of sewage systems by Highland Council and other problems.
Things are rather hectic in Gurn HQ at them moment but we hope to bring you more on these topics when time permits. The Nairnshire Telegraph also had a reporter present last night and so news will also emerge by analogue methods next Monday night.
