Scrap plans for the zip wire at Honister Slate Mine

Why is this important?

The proposed zip wire will have a huge impact on the landscape's character and loss of beautiful tranquility.

Planning officers had recommended the plan at Honister Slate Mine be refused due to the impact on the landscape. But the Lake District National Park Authority's planning committee went ahead and approved the zip wire.

The views are outstanding and would be spoilt by the 1km-long (3,400ft) zip wire.

The zip wire had previously been refused permission in 2011 and 2012.
