Abstract/Summary

Conventional modes of environmental governance, which typically exclude those stakeholders that are most directly linked to the specific place, frequently fail to have the desired impact. Using the example of lake water management in Loweswater, a small hamlet within the English Lake District, we consider the ways in which new 'collectives' for local, bottom-up governance of water bodies can re-frame problems in ways which both bind lay and professional people to place, and also re-cast the meaning of 'solutions' in thought-provoking ways.
