Cartmel Conservation Area Management Plan Supplementary Planning Document

Last Updated: 30 November 2021

A Conservation Area Management Plan (CAMP) for Cartmel is being prepared. This has a number of objectives:

  • set out guidance for protecting the special character of Cartmel Conservation Area
  • produce a List of unlisted Buildings or Features of Local Architectural or Historic Significance that are of particular merit in the Conservation Area
  • consider whether an Article 4 Direction to control permitted development is justified, and provide evidence
  • provide a strategy for Buildings at Risk
  • identify opportunities for environmental enhancement and the need for grant-aid

The CAMP once adopted has the status of a Supplementary Planning Document. This means it is a material consideration when deciding any planning applications within or affecting the Cartmel Conservation Area.

A draft CAMP has been produced carried out by local professional consultants following a long period of community engagement and consultation with the Cartmel Village Society.

As a result it is concluded it is not necessary to subject the Plan to HRA. These conclusions have been informed by the advice of Natural England, the Environment Agency and Historic England (see responses below).
