Allerdale Local Plan 1999
Following the adoption of the Allerdale Local Plan (Part 1) on 16 July 2014, most of the policies within the Allerdale Local Plan 1999 and the associated Local Plan First Alteration 2006 have been replaced.
The policies contained within the Allerdale Local Plan (Part 1) adopted on 16 July 2014, are now used to determine planning applications for development within those areas of Allerdale located outside of the Lake District National Park.
Saved Policies of the Allerdale Local Plan 1999 and Local Plan First Alteration 2006
Work on the Site Allocations Development Plan Document (DPD) or 'Allerdale Local Plan (Part 2)' has only just commenced. Policies from the Allerdale Local Plan 1999 and Local Plan First Alteration 2006 which relate to site allocations have been 'saved' until this document is complete. Saved policies are listed in appendix 9 of the Allerdale Local Plan (Part 1).
Proposals Map associated with the Allerdale Local Plan 1999
The proposals maps show the areas of land to which the policies and proposals in the Allerdale Local Plan 1999 apply. The main map at 1:50,000 scale shows the Plan Area as a whole and a series of larger scale maps called "Insets", for each town and for most of the rural villages.
Site specific 'saved' policies are displayed on the proposals maps. Part of the role of the Site Allocations DPD is to review settlement boundaries. In accordance with Allerdale Local Plan (Part 1), the boundaries for settlements within the following tiers of the hierarchy will be reviewed:
- Principal Service Centre
- Key Service Centre
- Local Service Centre
- Limited Growth Villages
The settlement boundaries illustrated on the Proposals Map for the Allerdale Local Plan 1999 are the starting point for the review.
The Local Plan Proposals Map and the associated settlement inset maps are not contained within the main Plan document and are available to download below.
