The Glebe is a popular recreational area, located in the Lake District National Park, South West of Bowness-on-Windermere town centre.
Although a popular tourist attraction, research conducted by the Lake District National Park Authority (LNDPA) found that areas of The Glebe has significantly deteriorated. The area was identified as a strategic regeneration location in need of investment to transform it into a world class visitor destination.
The focus of the Windermere Waterfront Programme is to maintain tourist numbers in Bowness Bay and The Glebe and ensure its continued economic contribution to the area.
A dominant feature of the area, which detracts from an overall visitor experience is moving and parked cars. The improvement scheme will help to make the area more user friendly for cyclists and pedestrians.
