Lakes boss in the spotlight after zip wire rejection

The chairman of the Lake District National Park has agreed to take part in a question and answer session with Cumbrian businesses after weeks of fierce debate over the future of the Lakes ignited by controversies about Honister’s zip wire plans and the underground nuclear dump debate.

The rejection of plans for Honister Mine’s zip wire led to accusations that the National Park authority was a hindrance to economic growth.

The nuclear waste repository proposal has thrown up fundamental questions about the relationship between Cumbria and the nuclear industry.

Now chairman Bill Jefferson has promised to address these and any other issues raised by Cumbrian businesses.

If you have a question about the future of Cumbria or doing business in the National Park send them to our business website and we’ll publish Mr Jefferson’s replies.
