New Ambleside Campus plans: Full report

Plans have gone on show in Ambleside to show how 600 students can be brought back to the town without having a negative impact on the local community.

When the University of Cumbria first announced it's intentions to re-open it's campus many residents feared that it would bring hundreds of vehicles into a nearby housing estate.

These latest blueprints were designed to tackle those concerns.
