Working in Partnership

We work with partners, business, land owners and communities to develop long term plans for the Park, in order to achieve our collective aims.

Cairngorms National Park Partnership Plan 2012 - 2017

The Cairngorms National Park Partnership Plan sets out how the Park will be managed over the period from 2012 to 2017. The consultation on the next National Park Partnership Plan is now over but you can still look at some of the 'Big 9 Issues' we looked at below.

Strategy and Policy

We help in the development of the Park strategy in consultation with partners, public sector, business, communities and land owners.


Consultations help public sector organisations make informed decisions that impact on people’s lives.

The Cairngorms National Park Authority frequently consults local residents and other interested parties on how we can best manage the Park. We are also frequently asked to respond to consultations that are run by Scottish Government and other organisations.

We currently don’t have any consultations running at the moment but you can view past consultations and responses by the Cairngorms National Park Authority on our consultations page
