Written byHazel Lawson

A TECHNICAL glitch has caused confusion over the closing date for comments on Elgin’s western link road.

Because of the issue, Moray Council will allow people to make representations on the planning application for the £8.5 million route up until May 27.

The original deadline for comments had been Friday May 9.

However, due to a technical problem, the e-planning section of the local authority’s website has been showing Tuesday, May 27 as the last date for representations.

A council spokesman said: “There has been a glitch in the system, whereby the deadline date has kept rolling forward on a daily basis, and by the time the issue was resolved, it was showing May 27.

“Under the circumstances, we are quite content for the deadline to be extended to that date, and we will accept representations until then.”

So far the council has received more than 200 representations on the application.
