A plan for a campsite at West Hall near Brampton has been withdrawn.

The original vision to transform the site, which is currently a vacant plot of grassland used for storage and grazing would have seen the installation of six eco friendly camping pods and camping pitches.

The applicant also proposed the planting of roughly 1000 native trees to restore the lands natural beauty.

Although quite remote, the proposed site close to Kielder forest, Hadrian’s wall, the newly expanded Carlisle airport and several walks and it was hoped that it would attracted hikers, cyclists and other rural tourists.

The proposals received nine public responses in all, eight of which were outright objections.

Numerous responses raised concerns about the economic viability of the project deeming it 'unsustainable'.
