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.
