possibility of creating a pedestrian route from the village down Levens Lane to the
junction of the A590.
The Parish Council shares this interest and has promoted the need to provide this
route for many years, as reported regularly in the Minutes of its meetings. Positive
interest from local residents is to be welcomed and lends weight to its already
substantial efforts to bring local authorities, statutory agencies, funders and local
stakeholders together to agree a viable and achievable proposal. As a result,
Cumbria County Council is now due to take this a stage further in the coming months
in a bid to prepare an acceptable plan that will assist the sometimes delicate
negotiations that are taking place. The Parish Council would stress that as with all its
work on behalf of the local community, it approaches this from a non-political standpoint.
