Hi apologies if anybody has brought this up on any other threads!
Watching ITV this morning at 6 a.m. They brought up the subject:-
Quote " The head of the Lake District National Park Authority in Cumbria says the rugged landscape excludes too many people and must change to attract a more diverse mix of visitors.
The discussion ensued with I think Adil Ray leading (apologies if am wrong..it WAS early) But apparently they are saying the Lake District needs to change to become more 'inclusive' It was stated that the Lake District is predominately White People? Whilst everyone agreed that maybe more wheelchair friendly access places could be implemented nobody was sure about how they could encourage other 'races' to holiday there? (I am not even sure they don't t.b.h. I think people who love the open countryside and mountain treks will go there no matter what!) The presenter (Adil, Asian) laughingly said maybe they could put up a mosque? Not that, THAT is what we want by the way?
Some seem to think to encourage more 'diversity' it involves changing the roads and landscapes?
To me: The Lake District, is unique for its unspoilt beauty. Why change it? Hikers love it. Nature lovers, love it.... No matter who they are? One of the (tongue in cheek) suggestions was that they build an enormous Amusement Park to attract more young people?
Surely there are enough other options for people who don't like to hike or take in the beauty or get muddy?
What do people think?
