Moray councillors reject Elgin link road

Plans for a multi million pound Elgin link road have been narrowly rejected by Moray councillors.

Members of the planning committee voted against the plan by seven votes to six.

It followed more than a day of evidence and deliberations.

The plan was for a link between the A96 and Elgin's Edgar Road retail park. It was aimed at relieving congestion in the town. However many residents opposed the development, on cost and safety grounds.
