Policies map

Last Updated: 15 May 2024

The interactive policies map shows the areas covered by policies, designations and allocations that are identified in our adopted development plan documents (DPDs) and will be kept up to date as new development plan documents covering the plan area (including Neighbourhood Plans) are adopted.

To use the map:

  1. open the 'My Maps' tab (top left hand corner of the page)
  2. Click on the 'Show side panel' button' (the side panel may already be open)
  3. Open the 'Map Categories' drop down menu, in the side panel
  4. Find the mapped policies area you'd like see by clicking on the + sign. For example "Adopted Local Plan allocations and designations"
  5. You can open map layers showing specific land allocations (for example land allocated to housing 'Housing Allocation') by checking the tick box on the right hand side
  6. You can zoom in and out and move around the map by using your mouse or the scroll bar in the top left of the map

As an alternative to the interactive map, the following PDFs are available:

The AONB DPD Policies Map shows allocations and designations across the whole of the AONB, part of which is in Lancaster City (that is: Warton and Silverdale).

Latest Changes

The inset maps for Allithwaite and Cartmel Land Allocations (Maps 6 and 11 respectively) have been updated following the making of the Allithwaite and Cartmel Neighbourhood Plan on 30 April 2024. The updates relate to the designation of local green spaces as included in the Neighbourhood Plan. As a result of these changes, the key has had to be altered slightly in respect to the Allithwaite and Cartmel maps. The Allithwaite and Cartmel maps also include the most to up to date position regarding nature conservation designations.
