PLANNERS have decided for a site visit before deciding on a proposal to create a zip wires experience.

It would involve seven individual zip wires for people to ride down, varying in length from 551ft at their shortest, to a maximum length of 1443ft. It would create a 'nearly continous descent' from one of the highest points. In particular how people would get to the start of the zip wire course at its heighest point - Ormandy Intakes, with the suggestion of increased use of 4x4 vehicles throughout the Forest to take them up to the start.

It has also said the development would be obtrusive, generate more traffic on the rural roads leading to Grizedale Forest, increase litter, additional noise and disturbance.
