Before Christmas a planning application was submitted to the Lake District National Park for a new car park at Ullock Moss to the south of Portinscale. The area had been used for temporary parking last summer.  The applicants had carried out some pre-application consultation at the time and we made our concerns clear at the time which can be seen in our initial response.

Members and supporters may wish to look at and comment on the application.  While the formal consultation period finished early in January we understand that the Park Authority will take comments up to the 5th February.  The application can be viewed on the Park Authority website.

We have today submitted a written response to the consultation Ullock Moss, Portinscale Car Park.

We very much welcome the principle of managing the situation around access to Catbells and in principle may support the idea of park and ride type proposals. However, we think there are a number of issues around this particular location.

A pre application consultation is being carried out by Crosby Granger Architects for a proposed car park at Ullock Moss, Portinscale. 

We think the proposal raises concerns around the principle of a car park at this location, how this fits with planning policy and potential landscape impacts upon the site and its surroundings.  We will be looking carefully at the proposal and responding accordingly. 

The link below provides information on the proposal and a link to survey monkey for your views.  The consultation runs until 31 July.
