Windermere Lake Action Plan

2017 - 2022

This Action Plan sets out the key new actions to be undertaken to secure and improve the environment of Windermere lake and the land immediately around its shores and improve the community and economic benefits these provide. This plan covers the next five years, building on the achievements from the previous two five year strategies. Windermere lake is a much loved and visited iconic landscape at the heart of the Lake District National Park. It is central to the image and tourism offer of Cumbria, attracting visitors from the UK and across the world.

The health and vitality of the communities, economy and environment of the south-east and centre of the Lake District are strongly linked and interdependent upon Windermere.

Those critical links are reflected in the integrated approach taken in this Action Plan.

The Lake District National Park Authority, together with South Lakeland District Council are leading on Action 4: Enhancing the Boat User Experience.
