We and our partners are working towards making this place an inspirational example of sustainable development in action. We want its prosperous economy, world class visitor experiences and vibrant communities to come together in sustaining the spectacular landscape, wildlife and cultural heritage.
We believe the Lake District deserves worldwide recognition. That's why in 2016 we will bid for World Heritage status, placing the Lake District alongside the Taj Mahal, the Tower of London and the Great Barrier Reef. Join us on our journey.
