Make your views known on Gaelic

5th December 2017

Time is running out to comment on the Cairngorms National Park Authority’s new  Gaelic Language Plan, with the deadline for comments being Friday 15th December.

All public sector bodies in Scotland are required to prepare a Gaelic Language Plan and this is to ensure that everyone plays their part in creating a sustainable future for Gaelic in Scotland. The Cairngorms National Park has a rich history associated with Gaelic – it being the dominant language in the area over 1000 years ago.

The CNPA’s Gaelic Language Plan sets out how the Park Authority will use and develop Gaelic in its everyday work and how the organisation will enable and promote the use of Gaelic when communicating with members of the public and key partners. This includes areas of work such as online communications, at the Park Authority’s visual identity, support for related projects in the Park as well as marketing and staff training.

If you would like to find out more or to make your views known on the CNPA’s Gaelic Language Plan, please visit the CNPA website, or pop into our offices in Grantown-on-Spey or the document can also be viewed in libraries and council service points. Alternatively contact Francoise van Burren on tel: 01479 873535.
