The View From The Park

Here's a conundrum.

Why is the Cairngorms National Park passing judgement on a wind farm proposal outwith its boundaries?

Apparently you'd be able to see the wind farm from parts of the park. (Intriguingly the report says this includes Dava Moor - I didn't know Dava was part of the park; the welcome markers from the north are after the moor and just outside Grantown and Carrbridge.)

I tell you what else you can see from parts of the park: Aviemore! What's worse? Some gently turning windmills in the far distance that provide clean power or a bundle of bad architecture and tower block hotels next to the Spey, soon to be joined by a massive Tesco?
