Development brief details

On 30 August 2017 we adopted Development Briefs for sites in Burton-in-Kendal and Endmoor. See the Phase 3A section below for details.

Development briefs provide planning guidance on how specific larger, complex or sensitive sites should be developed.

They show which policies apply to each site and contain detailed guidance on things like access, design and landscaping.

Development briefs are prepared following consultation with the public, developers and delivery partners and are a used when assessing planning applications.

The things development briefs cover include:

  • the overall vision for the site
  • the type and location of open space and other green infrastructure landscaping design and features
  • building design and site layout principles
  • accessibility into and through the site
  • community and other infrastructure needs

They do not consider merits of the sites as allocations, as the principle of development on the sites has already been approved.

Development Briefs have been adopted for the following sites:

Phase 2 development briefs

On 23 November 2016 we adopted the three Phase 2 Development Briefs for the following sites:

Any such application must be made promptly and in any event not later than 3 months after the date on which the SPD was adopted.

As part of the adoption process we have published an Adoption Statement (PDF/162KB/1 page).

East of Milnthorpe Road, Holme:

As part of an early engagement exercise we held a placemaking workshop for the above development brief site.

We invited comments on the above documents from Thursday 6 April to 5pm Thursday 25 May 2017.

We are now working on preparing the draft Development Brief.

Responses to the Phase 3B Development Brief early consultations will be used to inform the draft Brief.

We will conduct a consultation on the draft Development Brief later in 2017.
