A novel approach or an attempt at subtle PR ...

... you decide.

The people behind the proposed development at Tornagrain, a new town of 10,000 to be located between Inverness and Nairn on the A96, want to involve the public in developing the plans. Whoever is behind this approach has certainly bought into the requirement to assuage the fears, justified or not, of some who might seek to thwart this development; the UK planning process, not to mention Scottish and local rivalries are undoubtedly minefields that need to be factored into any major investment in this part of the world. As I have said in some recent posts, I hope certain local interests don't succeed in throwing the various development plans for the Inner Moray Firth area off course; if this initiative can aid in this I wish it well.
