Arnside and Silverdale AONB Issues and Options Consultation

Together with South Lakeland District Council, we are preparing a dedicated Development Plan Document (DPD) for the whole of the Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The DPD will form part of both authorities’ Local Plans. It will identify sites for new housing and employment to meet local needs and will set out planning policies to ensure that development reflects the AONB designation.

As part of the preparation of this document, we are undertaking an Issues and Options consultation and holding public drop in events to support this consultation. Comments are invited between Friday 6 November 2015 and 5pm Friday 18 December 2015.

Please visit South Lakeland District Council's Arnside and Silverdale AONB Development Plan Document web page for more information.
