So to enjoy the fresh air and natural beauty of the Lake District, it is proposed to build "landmark culture projects across Cumbria" (17 March).

This is yet another idea from the thought police and likely to go the same way as some of the daft investment projects for Millennium money that are now broke and shut. The park authority will have some fun explaining how these buildings fit within its mission statement!
