Help shape future planning policy in South Lakeland

22 March 2017

Consultation is set to launch on three development sites across the district. 

We are seeking opinions on draft planning documents for sites in Endmoor and Burton-in-Kendal, and on early proposals for a similar document for a site in Holme.

Earlier today (Wednesday) our Cabinet approved draft development briefs for two sites – Green Dragon Farm, Burton-in-Kendal and north of Sycamore Close, Endmoor – to progress to the final consultation stage.

The development brief for land east of Milnthorpe Road in Holme is at an earlier stage of the process, but suggestions are still sought to help feed into preparation of the brief.

Comments are invited in relation to all three development briefs between Thursday, 6 April and 5pm Thursday, 25 May 2017.

Once adopted the development briefs will provide site-specific planning guidance, setting out details that will inform developers and other interested groups of the constraints and opportunities presented by a site, and the type of development that is encouraged or expected on each site.

The briefs will also help to guide planners when considering future planning applications for the development sites. 

From Thursday 6 April all relevant documents associated with the development brief consultations will be available.

The documents can also be viewed during normal opening hours at South Lakeland House, or at Milnthorpe and Kendal libraries. 

As part of this consultation a drop-in event is being held for each site, details of which can also be found under the development brief section of our website.
