Springfield application for 115 houses on Liz's land - more criticism of traffic data submitted

Recently we reported that Nairn River Community Council had made severe criticisms of the Springfield traffic impact assesment document that accompanies their application for 115 houses on land owned by local Highland Councillor Liz MacDonald. You can see that article here: "Springfield planning application for 115 houses on Liz's land - NRCC "set aboot" traffic assessment."

Now the Kingsteps residents have submitted a critique that takes the traffic impact assessment to task in detail on ten different points - as one might expect included in that are what they see as major issues with the Lochloy junction and the traffic lights. They are saying that the assessment is seriously flawed and like Nairn River Community Council they are also calling for the document to be revised. 

Reaction at community council meetings in the town has already demonstrated that this application is controversial to say the least and many think it will have an adverse effect on the town's infrastructure should it be allowed to go ahead. Why not go and read the documents for yourself, both what the developer has submitted and also the criticisms of the Traffic Impact Assessment from the Kingsteps folk and Nairn River Community Council. 

The latest critique document is presently top of the pile and labelled correspondence under the documents on the Highland Council e-planning pages here.
