My wife and I wish to add to the objections already made in respect of the proposals for development of the land off Grange Fell Rd.
We would endorse the reasons put forward - difficult road access. Injecting business into an inappropriate rural setting. The steep slopes would mean an unsightly skyline on the edge of views which are the jewel of Grange. Looking down to the Town and the Bay from Hampsfell Fell End a magnificent panoramic scene can be enjoyed by both local residents and visitors. Development of the foreground lush fields would seriously detract from this long held pleasure.
Have other areas been considered? There is land with much more ease of access between Grange and Allithwaite . This would serve both residents and business with better communication. The development would affect the immediate community but there would be minimal impact on the tourists who visit and are such an important contributer to the local economy.
