The Park Plan’s Place objectives were shaped by your feedback – thank you!

The final draft of the National Park Partnership Plan includes a range of suggestions that you sent in to us via email, post, the interactive map and here on this web site last year.

In the Place section of the Park Plan, you said you wanted to see priority given to affordable housing and controls on second homes and short-term lets. As a result, specific actions on second homes and short-term lets have been added, and affordable housing has been brought to the front in this section.

You also said that you wanted to see improvements in public transport, path and cycle networks across the National Park. The Park Plan now prioritises improving public transport and active travel routes, particularly through our Heritage Horizons: Cairngorms 2030 project.

A commitment to upgrading visitor infrastructure, including accessible toilets was also highlighted. As a result of your feedback, An action has been added around accessible toilets, alongside a commitment to creating and maintaining high quality visitor infrastructure.

The infographic above shows some of the changes that were made to the place section of the Park Plan because of the feedback you provided.

Stay tuned for more Park Plan updates in the coming weeks!
