Zip-wire decision delayed
Bookmark and Share
The decision on a controversial plan for a zip-wire - which some may say will interfere with access for those who like to go walking in the Lake District - has been put back until November 3rd.

Head of development management at the park authority David McGowan said it was important the committee deciding on the case can examine all aspects of the issues involved in great detail.

This is particularly so in view of the high level of public attention the matter has attracted, he stated.

Mr McGowan concluded: "In the long term it's important that we make the right decision rather than simply make a quick decision."

Bodies opposing the tourist attraction include Friends of the Lake District, which is concerned it will affect walkers taking the popular route from the Honister Pass to Haystacks, the favourite fell of walking author Alfred Wainwright.

It is also worried the wire would bring in more traffic than the remote spot can easily cope with.
