Being in the National Park

PostedTuesday, 11 April 2017

Kirkby Lonsdale is now the new western gateway to the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Much of the town side of the River Lune, Devil’s Bridge and Jubilee Park are now within the National Park.

What does this mean for the town? More visitors? More shoppers? More coaches? More pressure on the town’s infrastructure?

An open meeting is being held in the Lunesdale Hall on Tuesday, 2nd May, when the Park Authority’s Head of Visitor Services, Julie Barker, will give a talk, and take questions, about the implications and benefits of being in the Park.

The meeting has been arranged by the town’s Chamber of Trade and the Community Interest Company. Julie Barker has been asked to highlight how the Park Authority sees the economy of the area being affected by this development. The meeting is open to all residents and businesses in the town, whether or not they are Chamber members.

The meeting starts at 7.30pm and admission is free.
