Casebook: Appeal Cases - Leisure and entertainment - Floating jetties accepted in national landscape

Am appeal bid to retain two floating jetties on Lake Windermere has succeeded after an inspector ruled that they were less intrusive than the original fixed jetties they replaced and were consequently visually acceptable.

Each of the jetties had 21 "fingers" held in place by metal piles projecting 2m above the water, with walkways supported by floating chambers. The inspector acknowledged that their modern design was different from those they replaced. Since their height remained constant, rising or falling with the water level, he decided that they were less intrusive in the national park landscape.

DCS No: 47851820; Inspector: Derek Thew; Written representations.
