Local Planning Policy (South Lakeland)

South Lakeland District

(Barbon, Casterton, Firbank, Grayrigg, Killington, Kirkby Lonsdale, Mansergh, Middleton parishes)

Local planning policy for these parishes is spread over a number of different documents:

There are no adopted neighbourhood plans covering this part of the National Park.

Cumbria County Council are in the process of replacing the adopted Minerals & Waste Development Framework (2009). Consultation on the Publication version of this Plan concluded in July 2016. The next step will be for the Plan to be submitted to the Secretary of State so that it may be examined for soundness before being adopted. The National Park Authority will need to consider whether it wishes to adopt this Plan insofar as it relates to the parts of Eden and South Lakeland Districts outside of the former National Park boundary.

One supplementary planning document – the Cumbria Wind Energy SPD (2007) - applies in this part of the National Park.
