A copy of the consultation document is available here on the Highland Council website.
Here's why this consultation is taking place according to the document linked above
"The Highland Council have a statutory obligation to seek court consent before disposing of Common Good land which may be ‘inalienable’.
In this context ‘inalienable’ refers to Common Good property that falls into at least one of the following categories: -
The Title Deed of the property dedicates it to a public purpose, or
The Council has dedicated it to a public purpose, or
The property has been used for public purposes for many years (time immemorial) without interference by the Council
In this case the property is located on The Links at Nairn which derived its title from the Royal Charter of King James VI dated 15 October 1589 and, as such, it is considered that a question of alienability may arise. Therefore, the proposed lease cannot be concluded until Sheriff Court consent has been obtained. If after this consultation, the proposal progresses to a court application the public will have a further opportunity to make representations within the Court process. A statutory advertisement will be placed in the Nairnshire Telegraph to inform the local public that the court process has been commenced."
