Bootle Parish Council submitted an application to designate Bootle parish as a neighbourhood area. The proposed neighbourhood plan area was formally approved by the Lake District National Park Authority on 3 June 2014, following a six week consultation. A working group has been established to prepare a neighbourhood plan.
The Lake District National Park Authority looks after this unique corner of England, encouraging people to enjoy and understand its beauty and helping those who live and work here. Our staff include rangers and field workers, advisers at our visitor centres, planners and ecologists.
