We are currently experiencing issues with our bin collections which means we have not been able to make it to some properties on the scheduled day. We apologise to everyone affected by this. To help alleviate the issue whilst a long-term solution is devised, we are suspending garden waste and glass, cans and plastic collections for up to two months from 8 July 2019. More details.
Local Plan - Submission
The Allerdale Local Plan (part 2) was submitted to the Minister for Housing, Communities and Local Government on 18 January 2019
The Allerdale Local Plan (part 2) will form part of the Local Plan, for the area of the Borough outside the National Park, alongside the Allerdale Local Plan (Part 1) which was adopted in 2014. It identifies sites and policies necessary to meet the Borough’s development needs to 2029.
The Local Plan will now be subject to an independent examination to be conducted by the Planning Inspectorate. The examination is a continuous process running from submission through to the receipt of the Inspector’s report. Part of the process will involve hearing sessions where those invited to attend, will have the opportunity to respond to matters raised by the Inspector. Once information on the hearing sessions is confirmed all details relating to the examination process will be advertised, made available online and sent to all those that made representations to the Local Plan.
All the examination documents can be viewed in the examination library.
