Have your say on planning document

14 December 2017

Comments are being welcomed on a draft development brief for land east of Milnthorpe Road in Holme.

We have been working on the proposal that will guide future development in the area.

Development briefs provide site-specific planning guidance which will be used when assessing planning applications.

They also inform developers and other interested groups of the constraints and opportunities presented by a site, and detail the type of development expected or encouraged by the local planning authority.

Once adopted the development brief will form part of the Local Plan for South Lakeland, outside the National Parks.

We are holding a consultation event to enable people to inspect the relevant documents and to discuss proposals with development plans officers on Thursday, 11 January, 2018 from 1pm to 7pm at Holme Parish Hall. 

Additionally, proposals can be viewed at the following locations during normal opening hours:

  • South Lakeland House, Lowther Street, Kendal LA9 4DQ
  • Libraries in Kendal and Milnthorpe

Comments and suggestions are invited on the development brief from today until 5pm Thursday, 8 February, 2018.

We have extended the statutory consultation period from six to eight weeks in order to accommodate the Christmas period.

Comments can be made by using the online consultation response facility. 

Anyone that doesn’t have access to the website can contact our development plans team to request a response form. These forms can also be picked up from any of the locations listed above and may be returned to the development plans team by email or post.
