The Gurnmeister is a plotter at Sandown and this is just a personal view although this observer understands that the Nairn Allotment Society committee is urgently looking at this issue too.
Here at the Gurn we are shocked to see that the Sandown Allotments comes within the mapped area for preferred development at Sandown. If the Inner Moray Firth Local Development Plan is approved as it is this means the allotments will be included as a development area. This is deeply concerning.
If the inclusion is a mistake then Highland Council should put their hands up and amend the document accordingly. Why were the allotments included? Would any of the four local members for Nairn on Highland Council like to contact the Gurn and explain please?
UPDATE: Communication from Tom Heggie which states Allotments not for development. He is contacting a senior planning official. More later perhaps
