Bluebird crashed on Coniston Water in 1967
People are being asked if they would support a change to the speed limit on a Cumbrian lake so a historic craft could make test runs of up to 100mph.
The team restoring Donald Campbell's Bluebird K7 wants to conduct engineering trials on Coniston Water.
However, with a 10mph speed limit on the lake a new bylaw would have to be created specifically for Bluebird.
The Lake District National Park is inviting people to comment during a consultation which ends on 31 March.
The current Coniston Water byelaws do not allow any speed in excess of 10mph, except in a legitimate bid for a National or World speed record.
Bluebird K7 holds the British Outright water speed record of 276.3mph, but the team will not mount a serious challenge to this record, believing 100mph will be enough to test it.
The craft is being rebuilt after it was recovered from the lake bed in pieces in 2001, 34 years after Donald Campbell's fatal record attempt.
