Nairn West and Suburban CC minutes for their January meeting read:
"There was considerable discussion of this topic, and a number of points were raised. It was acknowledged that the local cycling group (Revolution CT) did valuable work in promoting cycle use. But there was deep disquiet that this proposal had only been discovered by chance from Ward Business meeting minutes obtained under FoI. Councillors had apparently considered and decided the request to use the Links with no public mention or briefing, no notification to the CCs, and no evident consideration of the potential impact and implications. This was seen as unacceptable. It was extremely regrettable that this proposal had not been subjectto any form of public consultation."
