A request has been submitted to extend the boundary of the Lake District National Park.
Friends of the Lake District want it to include "the area of outstanding landscape" in south Cumbria - the area between Silecroft and Grange-over-Sands, the Millom Without, Furness and Cartmel peninsulas and the estuaries of the rivers Duddon, Leven and Kent.
The proposal, which has been sent to Natural England, would increase the size of the park by 155 sq km and by 6%.
Natural England and the Secretary of State for the Environment will make the final decision.
A number of consultation events are being held to give residents and businesses the chance to comment and the details can be found here.
