Have your say on the future of the Lake District National Park

I am very excited today to be launching a survey which will form a crucial part of my research project at Imperial College.

You can take the survey here now

There are a huge range of issues already beginning to affect the Lake District –  discussions about re-wilding, cultural history and landscapes, attempts to manage climate change through schemes to capture carbon, changes in farming, the sale of Blencathra, projects to improve water quality, conserve wildlife and develop sustainable tourism.

All of these will have an effect on how the Lake District may look and feel in the future so it is crucial to get an understanding of the attitudes of members of the general public about the possible future of the Lake District National Park.

This short questionnaire will hopefully help me to get a picture of this, and the more people who take part, the better my understanding can be.  The guinea pigs who have trialed the questionnaire have taken an average of seven minutes and have said they found it interesting and enjoyable so I hope you will too.

Please take the survey now and pass it on to anyone else who may be interested.

Thanks very much for your help and I will be posting updates and the final results of the project on this blog if you want to follow what happens.

About domhall

I have spent the last 15 years juggling careers in education publishing, expedition leadership and safety training. It has involved a careful balancing act of dreams of expedition travel, a love of climbing, walking and the outdoors and the the realities of life - and the later has definitely come off worse. I've run an adventure travel and expedition training business and lived in the sometimes sunny Lake District. Having taken a year out to complete an MSc in Environmental Technology I am now working for The Conservation Volunteers, working on engaging communities in their local green spaces.
