Planning applications tend to be contentious things where ever you live in the UK and if you happen to live a National Park the rules and regulations surrounding them are even more rigorous than anywhere else and often attract vociferous public debate; so whilst in Nether Wasdale I paused to read this sign,
I was curious to see what the NIMBY issues are in the village, take a closer look.
Surely to re-site the village maypole can’t be contentious can it? But then again, it needs listed building consent, so it could get tied up in red ribbons if not red tape, I hope they get it sorted before May.
(Now I’ve got to go to work in a moment, so I haven’t got time to ferret about at WWW.lake-district.gov.uk, for the latest info on this, so I’m relying on one of you out there to go off and read the detail on-line, please report back)
