Buildings in the Lake District

Development Management

We help people with the planning advice they need and manage the applications they make to carry out work in line with national planning legislation - as the Local Planning Authority for the Lake District. Our work includes assessing proposals with our planning policies, which seek to achieve the Vision for the Lake District and taking planning decisions. We advise our Development Control Committee on significant casework and take action when unacceptable work is carried out without permission. You can find out more about what we do, helpful guides, advice, who we are and how to contact us on our planning webpages.
