Langwathby Parish Neighbourhood Planning Area

Stage one - Neighbourhood Area Designation

The first stage when a community wants to carry out any form of Neighbourhood Planning is to designate the 'Neighbourhood Area' which it will cover. A Neighbourhood Area application was received from Langwathby Parish Council on 27 May 2014. After a six-week consultation period we designated the area on 17 July 2014. Langwathby Parish Council now have the right to produce their own Neighbourhood Plan or Neighbourhood Development Orders.

Pre-Submission Consultation Draft

Before formally submitting their plan, Langwathby Parish Council carried out the formal 6 week consultation on the proposed final draft. This consultation finished on 24 November 2014. To see the consultation draft click on the following links.

Stage two - Neighbourhood Plan publication and consultation

Parish Council have submitted their Neighbourhood Plan proposal for formal consultation, the consultation period ran for a period of six weeks. The purpose of this stage was to allow interested parties to comment on the draft, with these comments forwarded on to an independent Examiner who will review the draft plan before recommending whether it should proceed to the referendum stage.

If the plan meets the 'basic conditions' it will be put to a referendum of voters in Langwathby Parish for a decision.

The consultation closed on Monday 10 August 2015.

The plan can also be viewed at the Council offices and Penrith Library.

Following this stage of consultation, the Parish Council will consider any comments received and decide whether or not amendments need to be made to the plan prior to submitting it to Eden District Council. The plan will then be publicised by the Council for a further six week period (under Regulation 16) and arrangements made for the independent examination of the plan. If the plan is approved by the examiner, it will then be put to a local referendum.

Once adopted, the Langwathby Neighbourhood Plan will become part of the statutory Local Development Plan for Eden and will constitute a material consideration in future planning matters in the Langwathby Parish area.
