Pressure group Friends of the Lake District has raised objections to a proposed new business park inside the National Park boundary.
The new site would occupy 38 acres at Rather Heath, an area between Kendal and Staveley and home to Ratherheath Tarn, plus other, smaller tarns.
Friends of the Lake District said that it shares "the concerns of many local people and visitors who cherish the area both in its own right and as a gateway to the National Park, that the development would fundamentally harm the character of the area".
The body argued that it clashes with local and national planning policy, not least the rules concerning development inside a national park.
As well as planning to set out its own objections, Friends of the Lake District has also set up a Facebook group to fight the plan, which has over 1,400 members.
People who like to go walking
in the Lake District may enjoy putting on men's walking boots
or women's walking boots
and visiting the area near Rather Heath.
Local scenery includes the lower Kentmere valley around Staveley and the limestone escarpment of Cunswick Scar.
