The Parish Council also welcomes comments by email or in writing. Please submit all comments on the Draft Neighbourhood Plan by email to or by post to: 6 Hazelgarth, Allithwaite, Cumbria LA11 7RS.

Following the public consultation process on the Draft Neighbourhood Plan, the Plan will be amended and submitted to South Lakeland District Council together with supporting documentation, including the Consultation Statement setting out who has been consulted, how the consultation has been undertaken and how the representations received have informed the Plan, and the Basic Conditions Statement setting out how the Neighbourhood Plan satisfies the Basic Conditions of paragraph 8(2) of Schedule 4B of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.

South Lakeland District Council will then re-consult before the Plan is subjected to an Examination by an Independent Examiner. Once any further amendments have been made the Plan will be subjected to a local Referendum, and then ‘made’ part of the Development Plan by the Council and used to determine planning applications in Allithwaite and Cartmel Parish.
