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
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Quite literally recently, as could be seen and smelt on Harbour Street when drains overflowed with sewage from our outdated ‘combined’ drainage system after heavy rain on 24th January…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.
