Thanks a million for responding to The Local Development Plan Consultation in April 2019. The report shows the difference local people and groups like Aviemore and Vicinity Community Council speaking up and making their voices heard can make.
The Highlands Small Communities Trust (HSCHT) has provided An Camas Mòr with guidance on our experience of delivering affordable, cost-effective and secure housing for communities across the Highlands.
Right now is the most critical time for Aviemore’s future. All who believe in the future of not just Aviemore, but the whole strath need to demonstrate their continued support for this vision, by registering your interest.
MSP Kate Forbes (SNP) hosted an event at the Scottish Parliament on An Camas Mòr for the Cairngorms Business Partnership, Aviemore Community Council and Aviemore Enterprise Company. Gavin Musgrove reporting for The Strathspey and Badenoch Herald.
Many people are concerned that the shortage of housing and the high demand for holiday houses in Badenoch and Strathspey means that people who work locally will not be able to afford a home at An Camas Mòr.

The Community Council proposed the Aviemore sister community with a countryside park on both sides of the River Spey in 1987 we have been involved in its design and have supported it ever since.
I’ve grown up here, lived my whole life in Aviemore, my son is at School here, this is where I want to live. Locals are in the same boat with available houses being snapped up, used as holiday homes or allocated to people from outside the area. An Camas Mòr will give us options. Aviemore is expanding, we need houses, we should have a place we are proud to call home with a school, a hospital and lots of public facilities, Let them get on with it!
