Grasmere Boats - Certificate of Lawfulness Application withdrawn

Updated 24 January 2020

We can confirm that the application by Lowther Estates for a Certificate of Lawfulness (Grasmere Lake 7/2019/5808) has been withdrawn.

Because the application has been withdrawn no decision will be made. We were preparing our report and assessment when the application was withdrawn. It was our view the proposals were development requiring planning permission and the application should be refused. We have shared a copy of our working draft report with the applicant’s agent so they can see our assessment. This report is an unfinished draft. It will not be completed.
