Matterdale Parish

Matterdale Parish Council submitted an application to designate Matterdale parish as a neighbourhood area on 19 August 2013. The proposed neighbourhood plan area was formally approved by the Lake District National Park Authority on 26 February 2014, following a six week consultation. A working group has been established to prepare a neighbourhood plan. The pre-submission consultation on the draft neighbourhood plan took place between 6 October and 14 November 2014. The neighbourhood plan proposal was submitted to the Authority on 10 December 2014. Representations on the proposal are welcome and must be submitted by 20 February 2015. Details on how to do this is available in the attachment named Regulation 16 notification below.

Mr Christopher Collison has been appointed as the independent examiner for Matterdale Neighbourhood Plan.

The deadline for representations has been extended to 27 February 2015.

Following comments received from Natural England during the consultation on the Matterdale Neighbourhood Development Plan Submission document, the Authority has determined that a full Strategic Environmental Assessment is not required.

On 22 April 2015, Park Strategy and Vision Committee agreed the Authority’s response to the Examiner’s Report.

The Lake District National Park Authority, or 16 December 2015, decided to make the Matterdale Neighbourhood Development Plan. It now forms part of the Development Plan for the Lake District National Park.
