A meeting to decide whether to approve plans for a huge zipwire in the Lake District is getting underway.
The owners of Honister Slate Mine want to build a 1035m long zip wire in two lengths starting from Honister Crags and landing in the Mine car park.
If approval is given, it would be for an 18 month period while an independent study is carried out into the impact it is having on the surrounding landscape.
The Development Control Committee at the Lake District National Park Authroity in Kendal could also reject the application or defer it until they have more information.
