Anglers get say in Windermere consultation
Bookmark and Share
An eight-week consultation about how the largest lake in England is used has been launched by the Lake District National Park and South Lakeland District Council, something that may interest those who like to head down to its shores with their fishing rods.

The Windermere Management Strategy Review 2010 consultation is available online for interested parties to express their thoughts, water projects coordinator at the national park authority Suzy Hankin noted.

She added: "All opinions matter and we will be gathering them over the summer."

This could help anglers to work on ensuring they get the best access and facilities possible.

One part of the national park that has seen matters improve for those coming with their fishing tackle is Bassenthwaite Lake and its catchment area.

A series of initiatives by the Bassenthwaite Reflections community project to eliminate pollution has been praised by the Environment Agency's national head of water quality Paul Hickey.

He noted: "Our rivers and lakes are the healthiest for 20 years, seeing the widespread return of otters, salmon and other wildlife."
