Community Responses to 2 Nairn Planning Applications

Nairn River Community Council has in January 2018 submitted detailed objections ( in our role as a statutory consultee)  to  two  planning applications for significant new housing developments in East Nairn

You can read our submissions and others  on the Highland Council Planning website
Kingsteps application (115 homes) and Forres Rd/A96 Morganti site( 32 homes)*

*29 January - there are  some problems viewing the Forres Rd submission today on the Highland Planning website- but you can view it here on  
 we hope it will be properly posted on the Highland Council e planning page very soon

Our main concerns are  that local roads, water and sewerage systems in the town are at bursting point.
Quite literally recently, as could be seen and smelt on Harbour Street  when drains overflowed with sewage from our outdated 'combined' drainage system after heavy rain on 24th January...

We believe  that no more large scale housing can safely be developed in the town, without endangering the health of residents, and our tourist industry,  until :
traffic congestion and drainage infrastructure problems are properly addressed and  invested in
our natural assets of beaches, green spaces and wildlife are properly valued and protected
local social  housing need takes priority over the profit making ambitions of commercial developers.
