Awww just heard on another web site the Lake District National Parks Assoc. are trying to close down illers Fields mainly because of it's visual impact

Typical of Blighty give a man a desk and a pen and watch the power and stupidity go to his head

Like Baza said, who knows it's there until you drive into the car Park, yes you can see it from the top of the fells but you can also see a Power Station if you look the right way.

Me thinks an e-petition to the local council is called for, but would we get the figures required for one, bet we would with the help of all the motorhome forums.

Copy of Graeme's email ...

Are we to loose Miller Field Ambleside
Quote :

Good afternoon 

Miller Field Motorhome Camping is under threat of imminent, permanent closure. The Lake District National Parks Authority served an Enforcement notice on the site, we appealed against the notice but an inspector appointed by the Planning Inspectorate has upheld the Enforcement Notice following a visit to the site on November 7th 2013. 

The two major reasons given for the Enforcement Notice are a) that the site is located on a functional floodplain and b) the site has a visual impact when viewed from Loughrigg Fell. 

We do not, and never have, disputed either of the above issues but our stance on point a) that the functionality of the floodplain has been improved as a result of works carried out by MFMC and b) the judicious planting of indigenous trees/shrubs/hedges will in time soften the visual impact, have both been pretty much ignored. 

Even during the severe wet weather conditions of October 2009 not a single motorhome was put under any risk; the option to temporarily close the site due to conditions has always been available. 

Our next step is to present our case to our local MP, Mr Tim Farron, and to this end we have a meeting with him on the afternoon of Friday 29th November. We aim to discuss the options available to oppose the Enforcement Notice and we are looking to take as much ammunition as we can to this meeting in order to support our case. 

Consequently we would appreciate your comments, in the form of a reply to this email, stating your past experiences of staying on the site and the benefits your stay has had on the economy of the local area etc..... 

Please do not contact the LDNPA directly as we do not wish to antagonise them further, likewise we do not wish to bombard Mr Farron with correspondence prior to our meeting with him. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this email. Should you feel strongly enough to respond we would request that you do so at your earliest opportunity, we look forward to hearing from you. 

Yours faithfully 

Graeme Drylie

That's a real shame.
I don't understand the logic of the site being located on a flood plain. Surely the adjacent car park is at just as much risk? and is equally visible from the fell.
Doubt wether that will be closed as it generates more income!
We spent the best part of £200 in the town in just a day and half and only visited because there was MH parking available.

graham has up hill battle on his hands ,which he may lose as once these people dig in he will have a hard job to change there minds ,we all have opinion on this is it right to close it or keep it open .on our last visit there were a lot of vans there and the site had change ,it had become full blow camping site, if it had stayed as a stop over and just the small area we stoped on he may have got away with it but when caravan get involved the rules change .just my take on it this site has fallen victim of it s own sucsess

We got the e-mail direct from Graeme and have sent a reply in support.
It would be a sad loss to Motorhome community if a facility like this were to close - there should be more like it in this country.
