South Lakeland District Council has vowed to try again to convince the National Park's planners that their development of Ferry Nab would be good for the area.
The £2million plans for the pier on Windermere were rejected on Wednesday - good news for environmentalists and the opposition.
Fiona Marley Paterson reports:
Proposals for a major development at Ferry Nab at Windermere have been rejected by the Lake District National Park Authority.
South Lakeland District Council wanted to create new buildings, better jetties and more parking as part of a 2 million pound project.
The council will consider an appeal or revising the planning application.
– Councillor Peter Thornton, leader of South Lakeland District Council
"This is a great example of sustainable development. It will provide excellent new facilities for the public and visitors. It will encourage people to make less local car journeys and spend more time on and around the lake.”
The capacity of Braithwaite Fold car park will increase from 383 to 720 spaces and electric bike and car charging points will be installed.
– Michael Keane, SLDC Assistant Director of Strategic Planning
“This is a place people can come and leave their car while they explore the area on foot, by boat or bike.
"It will help bring access to the lake to ordinary families as well as attracting visitors to the whole area.
“It’s a major investment and a vote of confidence for the area. We believe it will bring economic benefits not just to Windermere and Bowness but also to other attractions in the area.”
A proposal to transform the Windermere shoreline by improving access for lake-users will be considered by planners next week.
It is hoped that the plans, which include creating new buildings, better jetties and more parking, will help boost the local economy.
South Lakeland District Council says the £2 million project will bring jobs and open up the lake for families and boat owners.
