“Yesterday, South Lakeland District Council’s cabinet voted to transform Kendal’s most controversial and ‘illegal’ car park into an “attractive and distinctive riverside destination”

Work is scheduled to start on the site in 2011 and, at a previous cabinet meeting SLDC, indicated no action to permit parking would be taken until a new scheme is finalised.

The decision is inline with the findings of a three-week public consultation in July, which saw two thirds of people support proposals to landscape the site”

The above is from 15th October Kendal Gazette, this will allow the construction of the ‘missing link’ in the Riverside Route along New Road in Kendal for pedestrians and cyclists.
