Springfield Properties withdraw from contentious Cairngorms New Town
Housing developer Springfield Properties has announced that it has withdrawn from a contentious project to build a 1,500 home new town on green field land in Aviemore at the heart of the Cairngorms national park.

An Camas Mor has been subject to a number of legal challenges, none of which were successful, and was to have moved on site next spring – something the projects remaining backers insist is still the case.

Johnnie Grant, owner of the Rothiemurchus Estate, on whose land the development will sit said: “An Camas Mor LLP is already in discussion with other partners and in the meantime is taking forward this project to the next stage of the detailed planning process with the original team and the work carried out by Springfield.”

A 30 year development plan tabled by Gehl and Benjamin Tindall architects calls for the creation of a new community on the site.
