This may well cost the National Park Authority dearly and I hope the members that voted against the scheme realise that. The planning application was recommended approval by the officers and will surely be passed on appeal by a Government Inspector who can bypass these dinosaurs and museum curators.
I woke up today honestly believing the National Park were progressive enough to pass this. But the second home brigade of the “Freinds” of the Lake District have spat in the face of progress once again.
Its not just bad for Honister as a viable business, its not just bad for the Tourism industry and locals at large, but its a kick in the teeth to the professional officers of the National Park who have actually been trying to work with business and get some progress around the place.
I hope that Honister do not take this attack on our counties progress lightly and lead the charge for change, because I’ll be right next to them.
