This project is to make sure Windermere lake and its surroundings is on a par with other lakes and waterside destinations and places to live around the world.
In 2008 we consulted people about the idea to improve almost everything connected to the Windermere area. While the landscape setting around the lake is spectacular and genuinely of a world-class scale, the quality of buildings, facilities and transportation too often fails to live up to an acceptable high standard. When there is so much worldwide competition we need to keep an eye on quality. If we are to benefit from repeat visits and future generations of people returning, we must aspire to be the best. Cumbria, the Lake District, its visitors, residents and businesses deserve it
We need to work together to make things better and the Lake District National Park Authority wants to facilitate this. We really want the public and local businesses to work with us on this.
Ideas that have already been highlighted as needing attention include:
People are being given the opportunity to comment on plans for Bowness Bay and The Glebe either in person at two drop-in events or through an online survey.
Regenerating Bowness Bay and The Glebe is fundamental to achieving a high quality world class visitor experience for all our visitors. We need you to help us decide the size and shape of the proposed development area by giving us your views on where the boundary should be.
