Macdonald Aviemore Highland Resort called in by park authority

A hotel chain's proposal to build 12 holiday lodges in Aviemore has been called in by the Cairngorms National Park Authority (CNPA).

Macdonald Aviemore Highland Resort has submitted a planning application with Highland Council.

However, the CNPA is the planning authority for developments in the park and can call-in applications and make a decision on them.

The proposed site is on land close to the resort's nine-hole golf course.

Described as "high quality, top end" homes, full planning permission has been sought for the project.

People living in properties close to the site have set up The Osprey Grange Action Alliance (Togaa).

They are concerned the proposal is not widely known about in Aviemore and that villagers will miss out on making comment on it.

A committee representing people with timeshares at the Macdonald Aviemore Highland Resort is to discuss the plan with resort bosses on Thursday.
