Occupancy restriction webmap

Some houses have planning restrictions on how they can be occupied. Some restrictions prevent holiday use. Other restrictions allow occupation only by people meeting certain criteria, or require that properties are affordable.

The map below shows permissions granted subject to some form of restriction on occupancy. Restrictions will vary between permissions. The specific controls can be viewed by selecting the relevant permission.

If you have concerns that a property is being occupied in breach of an occupancy restriction, please email planning@lakedistrict.gov.uk with the following information

  • The address of the site (with a location plan if possible)
  • The nature of the alleged breach, when it occurred and whether it is continuing
  • The name of the owner or person undertaking the activity (if possible)
