Keswick to Penrith Railway Re-opening


Progress so far towards our Transport and Works Order (TWO):

Engineering Design                                             DONE

Environmental Assessment           ABOUT HALF DONE

Business Case           published June 2007 by NWDA
Consultations                 one phase already completed

Route Protection - by LDNPA in core policies from 2010 

Legal powers application    –    when these are all ready.

We are collating information about land ownership and have consulted many landowners at different stages of the project.

If you own part of the trackbed and we have not contacted you, it is probably because your details are not in the Land Registry or former British Rail land sales records.

Please contact us so that we can keep you up to date with progress and discuss how the railway might affect you.
