Planning Applications 2016
Click here for links to planning applications for past years.

The parish council receives a copy of any planning application which has been made within the parish, and has 28 days in which to respond.  In order to meet this deadline, the plans are circulated and a majority decision is made. The Cumbria Association for Local Councils Planning Guide provides guidance on how to respond to planning applications and what issues constitute 'material' considerations (those relevant to planning authorities' decisions when considering applications).

Advice on applying for planning permission can be found at  This site tells you whether or not you will need planning permission, and how to go about making an application.
