BSCG deplore the CNPA decision on Friday 11 June to give the go ahead to 1500 houses on Rothiemurchus estate within the Cairngorms National Scenic Area . We consider this decision, that was for 400 more more houses even than reccommended by the CNPA's own officials, put the developer's interests ahead of the national interest of safeguarding Scotland's most precious countryside.
