We are very pleased to report that an Inspector has upheld the Lake District National Park Authority’s (LDNPA’s) decision to refuse permission to develop a fish-farming facility at Borwick Fold Tarn, just north of  Crook. Two iterations of the proposal were refused by the LDNPA. We challenged the proposal on both occasions and supported concerned local residents to do the same. The Inspector concluded that the proposal would negatively affect the character and appearance of the landscape and cause harm to the World Heritage Site, and that as a result, it was in conflict with several Local Plan policies.

The full wording of the appeal decision is available on the LDNPA's website at:
