Resort expansion given go-ahead

The expansion project has been in the planning for 12 years

An 80m plan to redevelop Aviemore Highland Resort (AHR) has been given the green light by the Cairngorms National Park Authority (CNPA).

Planning officials recommended that the board members granted approval as long as 33 planning conditions were met.

These included ensuring that 25% of the housing built as part of the expansion was affordable.

However, a spokesman for the developer said the current banking crisis could delay the project.
