Motion text

That this House is opposed to the planned mothballing of the Ambleside campus of the University of Cumbria from July 2010; notes that Ambleside is the only campus in the south of the county and that it has the longest history of all the university's campuses; is surprised that the university is making this decision given the excellent recruitment figures for Ambleside courses in recent years and the immense potential for what is the most attractive and picturesque location for any university in the UK; believes that the closure of the campus would be a massive blow to the town of Ambleside, to South Lakeland as a whole and especially to staff and students; and further calls on the university to withdraw its proposals and to ensure a vibrant future for the Ambleside campus and for the wider local community.
