Prepared for The Cumbrian Regional Joint Advisory Committee. A comprehensive report which presented recommendations for town and regional planning for the then county of Cumberland and the West Ward of Westmorland, which later became part of the Lake District National Park.

Sir Patrick Abercrombie (1879-1957) is considered the most celebrated British planner of his generation. He was appointed Professor of Civic Design at the University of Liverpool in 1915. Abercrombie prepared a number of ambitious plans for the development of Doncaster, Sheffield, East Kent, Bristol and Bath, and Cumbria. In these plans (as shown in this report) he demonstrated an understanding of the interrelated factors that needed to be considered by planners, including, geology, landscape, architecture, industry and transport.
