Penrith Strategic Masterplan

Penrith Sign

The Penrith Strategic Masterplan has been developed by AECOM as an evidence base document to underpin the Eden Local Plan. After securing funding from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), Eden commissioned AECOM Plc, a leading planning and design consultancy, to develop the Masterplan.

What is represented in the Masterplan is a culmination of rigorous testing and appraisal of the anticipated growth in Penrith, based upon figures taken from the Eden Core Strategy Development Plan Document (DPD).

AECOM has worked very hard to ensure that officers and councillors in Eden have played a key role in guiding the document. Other key specialists involved included the Transport/Education departments of Cumbria County Council, the Homes and Communities Agency and the ALTAS group, who specialise in providing advice to Local Authorities on large scale projects. The masterplan can be considered a collaborative document, which has had the benefit of local knowledge shaping.

The Strategic Masterplan for Penrith achieves the following:

The Masterplan will be used as evidence base in the development of the Housing Preferred Sites and Policies document. It is a key source of information which will guide both policy generation, and the understanding of housing site suitability.

Many of the issues raised in the Masterplan will be discussed in further detail within the Housing Preferred Sites and Policies document, to ensure that all issues are properly considered, and the right choices for growth are made in Penrith.
