CNPA welcomes rejection of Local Plan Inquiry appeal

21st September 2012

Duncan Bryden, Convener of the Cairngorms National Park Authority said: “We very much welcome Lord Glennie’s decision to reject all of the grounds on which the adoption of the Local Plan was challenged in this appeal.

“We are pleased that the judgement confirms that the adoption of the Local Plan was carried out correctly, and that the Local Plan will now remain intact in its entirety. The judgment is very detailed and comprehensive and we will take the time to study it over the coming days.

“This decision will provide clarification of the law in relation to Scottish National Parks which will help the Park Authority and all stakeholders in the Park to deliver the four aims of the Park for the benefit of people and nature.”
