Nairn's Cawdor Road project to be reconsidered after error

Proposals for a major housing development in Nairn granted planning permission earlier this week are to be reconsidered by councillors.

Highland Council said a decision needed to be taken again after a mistake was made in the officials' report on the Cawdor Road project.

Comments made by Nairn Suburban Community Council were incorrectly ascribed to another community group.

The project will go before Highland councillors on 18 September.

Scotia Homes, Barratt North East Scotland and Robertson Homes propose to construct 232 houses and 87 flats on land at Cawdor Road.

Council officials had recommended that the authority's south planning committee grant the project permission.

Tuesday's committee voted in favour of the development.

One of the conditions placed on the scheme is that it is reviewed after the first 100 homes are built.

In a statement, the local authority said: "Comments made by Nairn Suburban Community Council were incorrectly ascribed to Nairn River Community Council.

"Nairn River Community Council, in a letter dated 30 March 2011, did in fact formally object to the planning application, and this should have been clearly stated in the report."
