CNPA said it will deliver a summary of the plan to homes in the park
A 25-year plan has been produced to help guide the running and development of Cairngorms National Park.

The document has been submitted to the Scottish Executive for approval and a summary will be sent to every home in the park next summer.

Cairngorms National Park Authority (CNPA), which manages the 38,000 sq km (14,671 sq mile) area, has set out priorities for 2007-2012.

They include making housing more affordable and "green" tourism.

Threatened species

Conserving habitats, landscapes and supporting deer management were also listed as key actions during the first 25 years of the plan.

The park is home to 16,000 people and, according to CNPA, 25% of Britain's threatened species of wildlife.

Rare birdlife includes golden eagle, osprey and crested tit.
