The Cairngorms National Park Authority has suffered IT technical issues whilst trying to broadcast its planning meeting this morning.

The broadcast was due to start at 10am but members of the public could not access the livestream. Instead those clicking on the link were passed between two pages on the CNPA's website.

As a result, the public is unable to watch the proceedings and the park authority has said the recording will be made available afterwards.

Item agendas include consideration of the CNPA's response to two wind farm applications which could have a visual impact on views from within the national park, as well as an update on the launch of the Cairngorms National Park Minecraft world to the wider public.

The CNPA has stated on its website: "Our board and planning committee meetings are normally conducted in public.

"During the coronavirus pandemic, we have enabled a livestream for the public to access them remotely at home...

"Unfortunately we are unable to show a livestream of the planning meeting 23rd April 2021 at present.

"The meeting is being recorded and will be available here once the meeting has closed."
