Cairngorms National Park

We need your views on the proposed Local Development Plan

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


Proposed Local Development Plan 2020


PLDP front cover

We are consulting on the Proposed Local Development Plan (LDP) 2020 for a period of ten weeks and we would like your views.

All local authorities and National Park Authorities must prepare an LDP which directs development within an area for a five year period, setting out land allocations to deliver appropriate development in the right places and policies that will clearly help guide future decisions on planning applications.
