Richmondshire District, Craven District, South Lakeland District (Dent, Garsdale, Sedbergh parishes)
A new Local Plan covering the whole of the ‘old’ National Park was adopted in December 2016.
The Plan was found to be sound and legally compliant, subject to a number of modifications being made, following a public examination during 2016.
There are no adopted Neighbourhood Plans covering this area, however one has been drafted for Gargrave Parish, which lies partly inside the National Park.
A number of Supplementary Planning Documents provide additional detailed planning guidance to run alongside the policies.
A new Design Guide is being prepared and is already being used to inform planning decisions. This is due to be adopted as a Supplementary Planning Document in 2017.
