Any building or restoration has a huge effect on the Lake District National Park. We have to balance the demands of sustaining a prosperous economy and vibrant communities with the needs of this spectacular landscape.
We are currently reviewing our Local Plan and will be sharing updates online - find out more about our Local Plan Review.
We believe the Lake District deserves worldwide recognition. That's why in 2017 we will bid for World Heritage status, placing the Lake District alongside the Taj Mahal, the Tower of London and the Great Barrier Reef. Join us on our journey.
