Give your views on Allerdale’s future development

11 July 2014

Council planning officers are holding a series of drop-in session to ask the public about the location of new development across Allerdale over the next 15 years.

The Site Allocations Development Plan Document (DPD), which is also known as the Allerdale Local Plan (Part 2), will identify or ‘allocate’ sufficient areas of land within the district that lie outside the National Park. The aim is to map out specific types of development and land uses such as housing, employment, retail, leisure and open space for the period up to 2029.

This document will support the vision for the district set out in the Allerdale Local Plan (Part 1) in delivering sustainable development and economic growth across the borough.

This ‘issues and options’ consultation is one of the initial stages in the preparation of the Site Allocations DPD, and enables local communities to have their say on which sites should be developed and which sites should be safeguarded.

The consultation starts on Friday 11 July 2014 and continues until Tuesday 30 September 2014 and the drop-in sessions will be held in all Allerdale’s town centres to find out more.

Councillor Mark Fryer, Allerdale Borough Council’s Executive member with responsibility for planning policy, said: “This Council has pledged its commitment to making Allerdale a great place to live, work and visit, and getting the right developments in the right places is a big part of this.

“I would encourage everyone to get involved in this process. We really do want to hear your views and you could help to shape this borough’s future.”

The consultation documents and further information is available at at, and in the libraries in Aspatria, Cockermouth, Maryport, Silloth, Wigton and Workington, as well as at all Allerdale Borough Council offices.
