Decision details

Encroachment application to Install three replacement floating jetties at Osprey and Walkers Boathouses Windermere

Decision Maker: Lake Administration Committee

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Service Delivery Manager introduced an encroachment application to replace at the three jetties with a new floating jetty at Osprey and Walkers Boathouses, Windermere. The proposal would provide a single floating jetty with nine fingers at right angles with eighteen moorings, an increase from the existing twelve.


The proposed floating jetty would be of a similar design to the jetties at Ferry Nab and would extend 36.5 metres, which represented an increase of 12.5 metres to the current encroachment. This would comprise nine finger jetties and galvanised steel piles with a steel bridge connecting the jetty to the concrete bank. The exact dimensions would be confirmed via a full survey carried out by the asset team upon completion.


Members raised a query regarding the position of the Council on traditional and floating jetties, the Service Delivery Manager responded, highlighting that Members and both LDNPA and EA were able to influence the type of jetty used in applications.


RESOLVED – That authority to be delegated to the Director of Customer and Commercial Services to grant permission, subject to the completion of a new commercial encroachment agreement for the following:-


(1)        removal of the jetties; and


(2)        installation of a new extended floating jetty with nine jetty fingers.
