Members of Highland Council's Badenoch and Strathspey Area Committee have welcomed continued partnership working with Cairngorms National Park Authority (CNPA) around visitor management – especially in the Glenmore area.
Park authority representatives delivered a presentation to local councillors yesterday and focused on a review of recent visitor management activity.
Members welcomed the review and praised the ongoing partnership approach, particularly in relation to cross service visitor management initiatives in Glenmore.
Area committee chair Russell Jones, said: “The committee welcomes the continued close working between partners to deal with visitor management issues within Badenoch and Strathspey.
“This partnership approach is particularly key in relation to Glenmore which has seen large visitor numbers and experienced a number of issues particularly in relation to parking.”
Councillor Jones also welcomed the opening of a new public convenience at Glenmore which is now operational.
There will be an official opening at a later date.
Yesterday’s presentation at Grantown's Townhouse was delivered by Murray Ferguson, the CNPA's director of planning and place and Colin Simpson, head of visitor services and active travel at the park authority.
