Lazonby Parish Neighbourhood Planning Area

The first stage in developing a neighbourhood plan is to designate the 'neighbourhood area' which it will cover. A Neighbourhood Area application from Lazonby Parish Council was approved on 18 September 2014 after a six-week consultation period which ended on Wednesday 17 September. Lazonby Parish Council now have the right to produce their own neighbourhood plan or neighbourhood development orders.

Lazonby Neighbourhood Plan 2014-2029 Public Consultation

Lazonby Neighbourhood Plan 2014–2029 was open for public consultation (under Regulation 14 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012) for 6 weeks from Monday 17 July 2017.

The purpose of this consultation was to bring the plan proposal to the attention of people who live, work or carry out business in the neighbourhood area to seek comments on the proposed draft policies. The draft plan for Lazonby covers the period 2014–2029 and includes matters such as design and conservation, the protection of open spaces, housing and rural business development and micro-energy schemes. The geographical area covered by the Plan (the ‘Neighbourhood Area’) is the same as the Lazonby Parish boundary and includes the village of Lazonby and all surrounding countryside within the Parish.

Consultation drop in sessions are being held at Lazonby Village Hall on Wednesday 26 July from 7pm to 9pm and Saturday 12 August from 10am to 12 noon.

Comments on the plan may be made at the drop in sessions or submitted by email to or in writing to Clerk to Lazonby Parish Council, 15 Dunfell View, Kirkby Thore, Penrith CA10 1UT. The closing date for receipt of comments was Sunday 27 August 2017.

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 Lazonby 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 Lazonby Parish area.
