Local Plan consultation exercise extended

Residents are being given more time to share their views on a document which will determine planning strategy for the next 15 years.

Allerdale Borough Council is consulting the public on the next stage of the new Local Plan. This ‘pre-submission draft’ will form part of the final Plan, covering the area the Council administers planning for, but excluding the area inside the National Park Boundaries.

The consultation period has been extended to 4pm on Friday 12 July 2013 to give people more time to look at new information which has been made available on the subjects of housing, renewable energy and viability.

The Local Plan will set out a 15-year strategy to meet the needs of local communities for housing, employment, retail and leisure, while balancing the need to protect the natural and built environment. All the comments received will be submitted with the Plan to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government for public examination.

Further information on the Local Plan and how to submit comments can be found at  Copies of the Local Plan can also be viewed from 3 May at libraries in Aspatria, Cockermouth, Maryport, Silloth, Wigton and Workington, as well as at Council offices in Wigton, Cockermouth, Maryport and Workington. All comments must be submitted in writing, preferably, using the comments form, or alternatively by email or letter. Comments can be submitted either by email at or by post to Planning Policy, Development Services, Allerdale House, New Bridge Road, Workington, CA14 3YJ.
