Consultation opens on Neighbourhood Plan for Lazonby

Lazonby’s draft Neighbourhood Plan, which has been developed by a working group set up by Lazonby Parish Council is now open for consultation. Members of the public are invited to view the Plan and to submit their comments.

Neighbourhood Planning is a way for local communities to set out how they wish their area to develop in the future and allows them to write their own plan, which once adopted is used to help determine planning applications.

The draft Neighbourhood 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 to view and discuss the draft Plan are being held at Lazonby Village Hall on Wednesday 26 July 2017 from 7pm to 9pm and on Saturday 12 August 2017 from 10am to 12 noon.

Copies of the Plan and accompanying Design Guide may be viewed online at www.lazonbyparishcouncil.org. Hard (paper) copies of the documents are also available for inspection at:

  • Penrith Town Hall
  • Mansion House, Penrith
  • Penrith Library
  • Lazonby Village Hall
  • Lakes and Dales Co-op, Lazonby
  • St Nicholas Church, Lazonby.

Comments on the Plan may be made at the drop-in sessions or submitted by email to lazonbyneighbourhoodplan@googlemail.com or in writing to:

Clerk to Lazonby Parish Council
15 Dunfell View
Kirkby Thore
Penrith
CA10 1UT

The consultation extends over a six week period, ending on Sunday 27 August 2017.

The results of the public consultation will be submitted to Eden District Council and to an independent examiner for consideration. If the Plan is approved by the examiner, it will then be put to a local referendum.
