Thornthwaite/Braithwaite – We recently spoke at a meeting of No Go Gondola, a community group concerned about proposals for a cable car close to the villages of Thornthwaite and Braithwaite, to explain our views on the proposal and to give an overview of relevant planning policy.

We also recently responded to consultations on a hydro-electric scheme at Thornthwaite. We had no objection to the proposal in principle but raised concerns about the materials to be used, suggesting instead that local stone and slate be used. Read our response.
