Conservation Areas Supplementary Planning Document (2016)

The Council has adopted a Conservation Areas Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) to assist in the formulation of new development and alterations proposed within the district's conservation areas which lie outside the Lake District National Park.

A Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) expands upon policy or provides further detail to policies in adopted Development Plan Documents (DPDs). When adopted, a SPD forms part of the Local Development Framework but does not have development plan status and are not subject to independent examination.

The Conservation Areas SPD supports policies within the Allerdale Local Plan (Part 1), particularly S27 relating to heritage assets.  It seeks to set out the considerations and thought processes that will be needed to achieve good design for new developments and alterations within the conservation areas, appropriate and sympathetic to their character and appearance.

Conservation Areas Supplementary Planning Document - 2015 consultation

A consultation on the draft Conservation Areas SPD was carried out in 2015; the documents that were consulted on are available below.

A draft Strategic Environmental Assessment Screening Report of the Conservation Areas SPD has also been prepared and is available for public inspection.  The Council considers that the Conservation Areas SPD does not require a Strategic Environmental Assessment.

A draft consultation statement has also been prepared, outlining the bodies and individuals who have been formally consulted on the draft Conservation Areas SPD.  This statement will be updated following the consultation to include a summary of the main issues raised by commentators, and how these issues have been addressed.
