Congestion often heavy especially at weekends and during summer. Limited Public Transport. </li></ul><ul><li>Periodic congestion at Bottlenecks such as Bowness and Ambleside, parking problems & air and noise pollution </li></ul><ul><li>Many roads narrow, steep and winding, unsuitable for large volumes of traffic. </li></ul>
  9. 10. <ul><li>Footpath Erosion </li></ul><ul><li>1994 survey estimated that </li></ul><ul><li>4 million visitors a year take </li></ul><ul><li>walks of 6km or more. </li></ul><ul><li>More popular routes severely </li></ul><ul><li>eroded due to high volumes </li></ul><ul><li>of people. </li></ul><ul><li>Can create huge scars on the landscape – now visible from space. </li></ul><ul><li>Guidebooks making more remote areas attractive. </li></ul>
  10. 12. <ul><li>Second Homes and Holiday Homes </li></ul><ul><li>1 in 6 properties are second homes or holiday cottages </li></ul><ul><li>The increase in this type of accommodation, and in retirement homes has forced house prices to rise beyond the reach of most local people. </li></ul>

  13. 15. This can lead to conflicts between groups of people <ul><li>For example – people wishing to preserve the quiet of the area and those wanting speed boating and water skiing etc. </li></ul><ul><li>There has now been a speed limit placed on Lake Windermere to restrict the activities that take place there. </li></ul>

Footpath Erosion <ul><li>Constructing hard wearing footpaths </li></ul><ul><li>Regular maintenance </li></ul><ul><li>Fencing </li></ul><ul><li>Re-routing people away from areas prone to erosion </li></ul><ul><li>Educating people </li></ul><ul><li>Managing numbers – limiting car parking numbers. </li></ul><ul><li>Illegal to ride a bike on a footpath </li></ul>
  16. 18. <ul><li>3. Second homes and Holiday Cottages </li></ul><ul><li>Important for future of National Park to maintain vibrant communities </li></ul><ul><li>LDNPA aims to ensure some housing kept available for local people </li></ul><ul><li>‘ Affordable housing’ often provided in form of small groups through housing associations. </li></ul><ul><li>Occupancy confined to people who are working, or who have worked in the locality, or who have lived for 3 yrs within the District Council area. </li></ul>
  17. 19. 4. Honeypots <ul><li>Certain areas are tourist Honeypots e.g Grasmere. </li></ul><ul><li>Other areas still quiet and peaceful e.g. Wasdale. </li></ul><ul><li>Idea of ‘spreading the load’ would threaten solitude of less developed areas. </li></ul><ul><li>Local Plan recognises ‘quieter areas’. </li></ul><ul><li>LDNPA policies maintain character of quieter valleys. </li></ul><ul><li>Any developments that would increase noise, visual intrusion, traffic, litter or visitors are not permitted. </li></ul>
  18. 20. 5. Farming <ul><li>LDNPA can help by educating visitors about responsible use of the countryside. </li></ul><ul><li>Assist with rebuilding of walls, replacing gates and stiles </li></ul>
