Thirlmere Activity Hub

A Planning Application has now been submitted by TreeTop Trek for the ‘Thirlmere Activity Hub’ to include multiple zip wires across Thirlmere with the lines stretching from one side of the lake to the other.

We urge you join us and our partners in opposition to this proposal by writing to the planning authority with your concerns. Deadline for submissions is 12th January 2018

Keep up to date with developments by signing up to News and Campaign Updates. We'll send you updates on this application, news and progress via email. We'll also be posting regular updates on our Facebook and Twitter
