I-player stumbling

Wandering through the i-player I came across this documentary about the Honistor zip wire application first shown in October 2011. I found it really interesting and for anyone interested in the complex trade-offs and conflicting priorities facing the Lake District Planning Authority and the futures of our national parks in general, it’s well worth a watch – it’s a definite short cut to reading all 21500 words of my dissertation!

For me is was nice to have a relaxed reflection on just how fascinating these issues are, and how much I have enjoyed the project when I was getting bogged down in word counts and contents pages.  I think the results are looking fascinating and I hope will be of interest and useful to all the stakeholder organisations and the people who took part in the survey.  With the word count trimmed down and a few final bits added, the project is nearly done and I look forward to sharing the results here soon.

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.
