Allerdale Local Plan
Over the past few years Allerdale Borough Council has been working on the production of a new Local Plan for the area of Allerdale that lies outside the National Park.
The new Plan will determine how future development will shape your community, outlines the spatial strategy for the area and the planning policies that will be used to manage development proposals through the planning application process.
We produced an Issues and Options document and consulted on it in 2006 with an additional consultation on an updated document in 2009. During these two periods of consultation we gathered a wide range of feedback from local communities, businesses and organisations on the emerging vision and objectives of the Borough. Together with national policy and local evidence these views and comments have helped to shape our ‘Preferred Options’ for the future of Allerdale, which are the subject of this latest consultation.
We would like to involve as many people as possible in producing the Allerdale Local Plan. To help encourage both communities and individuals to have their say we are holding a number of exhibitions, surgeries and workshops during the consultation period to promote the Plan and answer any questions.
You can view the ‘Preferred Options’ for Core Strategy, Development Management and associated documents, and find out more about the events;
