    The proposed development at the Mart is potentially the True saviour of Thurso.

    There is no virtue in revisiting failed rejected fantasies elsewhere in the town. Therein lies the road to ruin. And we the people of Thurso must never be fooled onto that path.

    Following the inevitable outcome of recent events there is still only one serious contender in the Thurso development stakes. For your own benefit I implore all my fellow Thurso folkies to support the proposed development at the mart. The future of the town depends on its success. Your future depends on its success. There are no alternatives. Get behind the proposed development at the mart or forever hold your ambition. Your councillors support you and they support the proposed development at the mart. For your sake, for the sake of your children and your children's children give the mart your unequivocal support.

    Just out of interest who is this Crayola who has such a great interest in Thurso and the mart site? Does he/she live in Thurso? Does he/she own property in or around the mart area? I'd just like to know what their interest is?

    Does it really matter who he/she is? Just take the posts at face value. It is an anonymous message board.

    It's great to be able to hide behind anonymity while it lasts

    No, I think I will stick to giving my support 100% to a development that is viable. As for the Councillors you speak of, they don't support me, they clearly don't speak for me, so, we will see what happens when May comes.

    So the Mart site debacle continues. Dancing on Asda's grave for sure.

    so if its up for sale now then what happened to the proposed garden centre and supermarket? I personally don't think Asda are interested in opening up there or anywhere else round this area, same with the other big names that were bandied around over the last couple years. I can't see Thurso improving much either with the recent developments (or rather a lack of developments) and coupled with the further downgrading and job reduction at Dounreay it only means less money coming into the area. Scrabster making a bigger pier will only benefit the few so what's left?

    I can assure you Asda will not be opening a store in Thurso. It is not logistically feasible for them to build a store in Thurso. Looks like you're stuck with another eyesore. I suggest you get on to 'e cooncil and ask what is going on. Only they know.
    A 1991 Gallup survey indicated that 49 percent of Americans didn't know that white bread is made from wheat.

    I know the new development at the Mart site was awarded planning permission in the summer. Has anything moved forward on site yet?

    I don't expect to be told Waitrose and John Lewis are opening next week but some positive news would be welcome after such a long wait.
