PREVIOUS correspondents (Letters, 2 and 6 May) outlined the harmful consequences, for landscape and traffic on local roads, of the “incomprehensible” decision by the Cairngorms National Park Authority to allow a new town of 1,500 houses at An Camas Mor on Rothiemurchus Estate.
The amazing array of wildlife that stands to suffer tends to be overlooked, and surveys completed last year for the developer have not even been released to the National Park Authority.
The local conservation group has consistently warned against over-development in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park and has now produced a short video showing a selection of the wildlife threatened by the new town proposals in this remarkably rich area.
