Development Management Policies
We are currently preparing a Development Management Policies Development Plan Document (DPD) for South Lakeland outside the National Parks. This document will provide detailed policies that will be used in the determination of planning applications, and help manage and shape the quality of new development.
At present development proposals are assessed against the following:
- Local Plan Core Strategy (PDF/4.36MB/180 pages)
- Land Allocations documents
- 'saved' policies of the South Lakeland Local Plan 2006
Some policies in the South Lakeland Local Plan 2006 and some topic areas covered by other existing policies require updating or supplementing to reflect changes in national policy and local circumstances.
We have prepared a guidance note to assist with the application of Policy DM11 between now and formal adoption of the Development Management Policies DPD.
Submission and Examination
On Wednesday 28 February 2018 we submitted the Development Management Policies DPD to the Secretary of State (Planning Inspectorate) for Examination.
For more information on the progress of the Examination, please see Development Management Policies DPD Examination.
