Following the consultation, the draft Lazonby Neighbourhood Plan, associated documents and the responses received during the consultation period will be sent to an independent Inspector to be examined. If the Plan is approved by the examiner, it will then be put to a local referendum.

Consultation on Draft Neighbourhood Plan (Regulation 14)

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.

When the draft Plan and its associated documents were submitted to Eden District Council for the Regulation 16 Consultation process to begin, it was discovered that not all of the Statutory Consultees listed under Regulation 15 of The Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 had been consulted. Therefore, those missing Consultees were consulted for a further 6-week period between 19 February and 2 April 2018.


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 has the right to produce their own Neighbourhood Plan or Neighbourhood Development Orders.
