Lake users asked to have their say in survey


People who spend time on Windermere are being urged to give their views on how services could be improved.

South Lakeland District Council (SLDC) and the Lake District National Park Authority (LDNP) are jointly carrying out the Lake Windermere Services User Survey 2018.

The aim of the survey, which is undertaken every four years, is to gather information on lake usage to inform decisions on future services and facilities.

Both authorities have certain responsibilities at the lake.

SLDC owns the lake-bed, provides public slipways and manages swinging moorings, while the LDNP is responsible for lake byelaws.

A spokesperson for SLDC said: “By taking part, lake users have the opportunity to rate and comment on services and facilities.

“We are encouraging people to take the survey online, however, paper copies are available at the Ferry Nab office.”

Many lake users have already had their say, following a survey launch at the Windermere Boat Show on Friday by council officers.

The spokesperson added: “We had a great response at the boat show last week, but if you weren’t at the event or didn’t have chance to fill a survey out, I’d urge you to visit our website to complete it.

“The information will be used to improve both authorities’ understanding of the needs of lake-users and ensure that services and facilities are in line with people’s expectations.”

The survey can be completed online at:

All surveys must be completed by 31 August 2018.

The results of the survey will be shared on SLDC’s website.
