Burneside Parish Council submitted an application to designate the Parishes of Strickland Roger and Strickland Ketel (excluding land known as the West of High Sparrowmire site and part of the North of Laurel Gardens site) as a neighbourhood area. The proposed plan area was formally approved by the Authority on 10 June 2016 and by South Lakeland District Council on 29 June 2016 following a six week consultation which ran from 28 April 2016 to 9 June 2016. A working group has been established to prepare a neighbourhood plan.
The area that has been approved for the purposes of producing a neighbourhood plan straddles the National Park boundary. South Lakeland District Council in this respect is the lead authority and further details can be found on their website https://www.southlakeland.gov.uk/planning-and-building/south-lakeland-local-plan/neighbourhood-plans/
