The Community Council proposed the Aviemore sister community with a countryside park on both sides of the River Spey in 1987 we have been involved in its design and have supported it ever since.
I’ve grown up here, lived my whole life in Aviemore, my son is at School here, this is where I want to live. Locals are in the same boat with available houses being snapped up, used as holiday homes or allocated to people from outside the area. An Camas Mòr will give us options. Aviemore is expanding, we need houses, we should have a place we are proud to call home with a school, a hospital and lots of public facilities, Let them get on with it!
