We are asking for your views on planning documents

2 November 2017

We are seeking public opinion on two development plans.

We have been working with Lancaster City Council on a dedicated plan that will guide future development in the Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

The AONB development plan will form part of ours and Lancaster City Council's local plans once adopted. 

The plan identifies sites for new housing and employment, to meet local needs, and sets out planning policies to ensure development reflects the AONB designation.

In addition, we have also prepared a Development Management Policies Development Plan Document (DPD) for South Lakeland.

The document provides detailed policies which will be used when assessing planning applications and will help manage and shape new development across the district, outside the national parks.  

Both documents were approved for publication by our Full Council on 12 October 2017.

Lancaster City Council’s Full Council approved the Arnside and Silverdale AONB document on 27 September 2017.

Both development plans have been published for a six-week formal representations period from today until 5pm Thursday, 14 December, 2017.

Comments on both plans are invited during this period.

Please be aware that at this stage, late comments cannot be accepted.

This will be the final opportunity for people to have input on the documents before they are submitted, along with all comments made during the representations period, to the secretary of state for examination by an independent inspector.

Comments on either document can be made using the consultation response facility.
