Three local community councils fall into abeyence

"Cawdor & West Nairnshire, East Nairnshire and Nairn West & Suburban failed to attract half the maximum membership so won't be established for the new term," states Highland Councillor Paul Oldham on the popular social media page Nairn our Town. 

He goes on to say: 

"The other two Auldearn and Nairn River did get at least 50% so will continue but not over 100% so there will be no election, and they may need to co-opt to top up their membership.
East Nairnshire was already not operating but the loss of Cawdor & West Nairnshire and Nairn West & Suburban, both very active community councils, will be sorely felt.
The next opportunity for nominations to be made to those Community Council’s will be in January 2024"
