The planning authority for this parish is Allerdale Borough Council (ABC). Copies of all applications (and plans) submitted are sent to the Clerk which are then considered by members of the Parish Council. ┬áThe Parish Council’s comments on an application are taken into consideration when the authorities make their decision. ┬áThe final decision on planning matters is made by Allerdale Borough Council, either by their Officers, if a minor matter, or by the elected Council.

If an elector wishes to object to an application, it would be helpful if you could forward copies of any such correspondence to the Clerk, so that the Parish Council is aware of the observations when it decides its own comments.

Clicking on a the Planning Application reference will take you directly to the Allerdale Borough Council Planning Portal where you can access full details of the application and view any associated plans etc.
