Hi All sorry for the cross posting but some
of you will not have heard this, but as many enthusiasts enjoy visits
to Launceston so it will be of interest (and apologies to those who have already
seen a similar message several times elsewhere!):
Members of this
discussion group may be aware that there is a proposal to extend the Launceston
Steam Railway by a further two miles to the village of Egloskerry.
extension had been proposed as part of a project Cornwall Council is developing
to build a new multi-use trail. Following several years of negotiations, the
original project to build a 100% off-road trail and extend the railway has
turned into a trail that will be 46% on road, with the off-road section designed
in a way that will block any future extension of the railway (thus potentially
jeopardising the long-term future of the LSR).
Two planning applications
have recently been made by Cornwall Council(to themselves) regarding the trail;
anyone is able to make an objection to the planning applications, so if you have
any concern about the effect of the trail on the LSR it is recommended that you
submit an objection. If you don't have the time to write an objection, but wish
to support the LSR, you can also sign our petition at http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/lsr/.
Further details of the current situation and
the proposals can be found on the `TRAC Project' and `News' pages of the LSR
