Since 2010 iCARE have been making the community aware of the CFPA intention to take over the local amentiy land known as Linear Park.
This was originally denied by the port manager as rumours, but at a meeting of the Community Council on the 3rd November 2010, he confirmed that he had indeed been charged with looking at the possibility of taking back our park and using it for port business.
On December 14th 2011 iCARE made the community aware by way of a leaflet distributed to all households that the CFPA and the HC were in receipt of a confidential letter that informed the CFPA they had certain permitted development rights.
Over the weekend of 21st April iCARE was made aware of the distinct possibility that the CFPA were about to erect temporary fencing to get the public used to having no access to their park anymore and then they will erect the proper steel fencing and this was further confirmed on Monday 24th April
In response iCARE along with its members organised a public protest on Monday 23rd April at 7pm on the linear Park and had a fantastic turn out.
As Chairperson I would like to thank everyone who is supporting this campaign and signing the petition.
We call on you to look else where with regards your expansion plans for the port as this is the last piece of green land in Invergordon and is used regularly through out the year by residents and visitors, young and old, all of whom enjoy the stunning views, peace and tranquility that is the Linear Park.
We the undersigned will fight to protect Linear Park from being destroyed.
