Cairngorms National Park

EDM number 1212 in 2002-03, proposed by Pete Wishart on 14/05/2003.

That this House welcomes the establishment of the UK's largest National Park situated in the Cairngorms; notes the appalling decision to exclude Highland Perthshire from the parks boundaries, despite recommendations from Scottish Natural Heritage for its inclusion; further notes that the boundary will now run across the top of the Perthshire hills, with one side in the park and the other out; believes that the decision to exclude Perthshire is designed solely to exclude Perth and Kinross Council from the planning authority; further believes that National Park boundaries should be determined on a geographic not political basis; and asks the new Scottish Executive to look at the boundaries once again and reinstate Highland Perthshire within the park boundaries.

This motion has been signed by a total of 7 MPs.
