Development Management Policies DPD: Pre-publication Consultation

Closed 17 Jul 2017

Opened 19 Jun 2017


South Lakeland District Council is currently preparing a Development Management Policies Development Plan Document (DPD).  This document will set out the criteria against which planning applications will be considered including design and environmental standards. It will contain new planning policies that will replace those remaining from the Local Plan adopted in 1996. The document will apply across the District outside the National Parks.

Following consultation on the Draft DPD in winter 2016/17, we are now consulting on proposed main changes to the policies contained in the draft document and the introduction of two new policies. Comments are invited between Monday 19 June 2017 and 5pm Monday 17 July 2017.

Further information (including how to comment) and relevant documents can be found on our Development Management Policies webpage using the link below.
