News concerning extending the Lake District National Park.
I’m supporting the Friends of the Lake District (FLD) bid to extend the southern boundary of the Lake District National Park. It’s good to see such ambitious plans proposed. In recent years some campaigners have been too timid regarding the extension of park boundaries and the creation of new National Parks. Good to see FLD taking a lead.
Here’s what FLD are saying:
Friends of the Lake District has submitted a formal request to extend the southern boundary of the Lake District National Park to Natural England (NE) for its consideration; Natural England is the government agency with the statutory powers to create a National Park or vary its boundary.
The extension proposed would incorporate an area of outstanding landscape in the south of Cumbria, its land and its estuaries, increasing the size of the Lake District by 155 km2 increasing its overall area by approximately 6%.
