Holme Holt

Ainstable Parish Council voted to apply for planning permission from Eden District Council for the Holme Holt Project.


For a long time, the vehicles parking along the length of Armathwaite Bridge have caused concern. Parked vehicles restrict the visibility and pose a risk for pedestrians and traffic alike. Wider vehicles like tractors, articulated lorries, and emergency services struggle to get across the bridge at times. These are real and understandable concerns, particularly to the communities on the east side of the River Eden who rely on this crossing point.

To address these concerns, and reduce the risks to the public, Ainstable Parish Council is proposing to create a safe stopping-off point and parking place on the Ainstable side of the bridge.
