What did we consult on?

Consultation Period: 27 June 2016 – 30 September 2016

We consulted on the key issues to be addressed in the next National Park Partnership Plan 2017-2022. The Partnership Plan is the management plan for the Cairngorms National Park.

It will set out how all those with a responsibility for the Park will co-ordinate their work to tackle the most important issues. It will identify an overall vision and strategy for managing the National Park, and will include priorities to which public bodies and other partners will direct their effort and resources over the next five years.

In particular, the Partnership Plan will:

  • Set out the vision and overarching strategy for managing the Park
  • Guide the work of all public bodies and other partners to deliver the aims of the Park
  • Provide the strategic context for the Local Development Plan
  • Set out the regional land use framework for the Park
  • Show how the Park will contribute to the Scottish Government’s core purpose and national outcomes

This consultation did not try to cover everything that happens in the Cairngorms National Park. Instead it outlined the big issues on which we wanted views.

The consultation looked at:

  • The big issues we need to tackle
  • The proposed policy direction for the next National Park Partnership Plan
