CNPA refuses Mossie housing development

5th March 2010

The planning committee of the Cairngorms National Park Authority (CNPA) has refused an application for 193 houses in Grantown-on-Spey at its meeting in Boat of Garten this morning (Friday 5 March).

The recommendation put forward by planning officers was to refuse the application to develop the area known locally as “The Mossie”.  Planning committee members turned down the proposals because of the potential for flooding, the area’s high nature conservation value especially for breeding waders and invertebrates, and the unsuitability of the design of the proposed houses.
