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
If you live in Cumbria, contact your MP. There are six parliamentary constituencies in Cumbria. Each constituency has one MP. The MPs are all available at regular advice surgeries to meet with constituents. You can also use the links provided to contact your MP via post, email or phone.
It's extremely helpful to have your feedback. It helps us to refine our arguments and present a stronger case if and when this proposal is submitted to the Planning Authority.
And please encourage other people to look at the application and submit their views to the planning authority.
Get in touch with the local press to let them know how you feel.
