The only membership organisation dedicated to protecting and enhancing Lake District and Cumbrian landscapes
20th February 2018: We have received confirmation that Treetop Trek has withdrawn its ‘Thirlmere Activity Hub’ planning application. It will no longer be considered by the planning authority.
We would like to take the opportunity to thank each and every one of you who took the time to write to the planning authority with your objections to the 'Thirlmere Activity Hub', to those of you that sent us such wonderful images (and paintings) of the Thirlmere valley, those who attended our rally, donated to our campaign and offered us support and encouragement in our efforts to stop this development.
Sign up to News and Campaign Updates and we'll send you updates, news and progress of all of our planning activities and campaigns via email. This campaign has been supported by Campaign for National Parks Fighting Fund.
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.
