SLDC Local Plan – Review

Feb 18, 2020

South Lakeland District Council is beginning a review of the South Lakeland Local Plan. The Local Plan covers the parts of South Lakeland District which lie outside the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks.

The Local Plan needs to be reviewed regularly so that it continues to meet the challenges facing our area. In particular we need to ensure that it helps to deliver the Council’s strong commitment to action on climate change and biodiversity, whilst at the same time carefully considering the housing and economic growth that our area needs to continue to thrive.

Please visit the SLDC website at Here you can find out all about the review and read some key documents that they are seeking your views on.

SLDC are also holding a number of ‘drop in’ conversations across the District. If you would like to talk about the Local Plan review with them and share your thoughts please come along to one of the events:

Thursday 27th February – Kirkby Lonsdale, Lunesdale Hall – 3pm to 7.30pm
