The Allerdale Local Plan (Part 2) - development process
The Allerdale Local Plan (Part 1) sets out the strategic and development management planning policies for the parts of the district outside the Lake District National Park; it was formally adopted in July 2014.
Part 2 of the Local Plan, the 'Site Allocations' Development Plan Document (DPD), identifies or 'allocates' land to deliver the strategy set out in part 1, and contains supporting policies.
The Allerdale Local Plan (Part 2) was submitted to the Secretary of State for independent examination in January 2019 and hearings undertaken in May 2019.
The government's Planning Inspector issued his final report and recommended modifications to the Council on 09 January 2020, which marks the end of his independent examination of the submitted plan. The Full Council will now need to consider the plan for adoption. Further details of the examination can be found on the Examination (Part 2) page.
