Interestingly, I was reading the Acoustic Report provided by Hann Tucker yesterday and that was quite intriguing how the measured noise survey  data and 'appropriate' acoustic qualifiers were... erm... how should I put it.... used very carefully :(

I thought their sound report was a total load of b*ll*x   ;D

Most people on here know when you are out on the fells you can here people shouting from half a mile away. It is no different on Fleetwith Pike despite what that daft report states.

Yup, you can hear the screams from Zip World at Blaenau Ffestiniog from a great distance away.

I agree 100%.  I share your views and was quite amazed at how the information was presented to provide a 'feasible' argument to show how there would be little or no impact.


Grrrrrrrrrrr

It is decision day folks. Fingers crossed the committee make the right decision for the future of the Lake District. I dread to think what will happen in other mine areas if this gets approved.

Yes indeed. Let us hope we see democracy in action rather than inaction.

It's just been announced on Twitter that the Honister Zip Wire has been approved.


It's been approved subject to conditions (not sure which conditions).  The 10 member committee voted 7-3 in favour.

Richard Leafe (Lake District National Park Chief) has just posted this on his Twitter account:


A good outcome for adventure and supporting our mining heritage in the Lakes. Well done Honister.

Adventure my a#se!  This isn't an adventure it's a fairground ride.  I am sickened by this - the LDNPA should hang their heads in shame.

Now watch the next step, a drip feed of applications to vary any conditions that get in the way - these do not normally get referred to the planning committee.
Things I have seen:
- an application that included preservation of trees followed by a variation to knock down the trees that got in the way of builders vehicles.
- an application that included a fitness trail followed by a variation to just put up a bench.
- an application that had a blank wall to prevent overlooking followed by a variation to put a window in (they even built a bricked in window in the construction to knock out later.)

ninthace - what would the position be if the noise levels are actually as bad as people fear they will be?  Is there any way that someone can appeal later on the basis that the installation produces more noise/traffic etc than is set out in the application?
