In light of the government’s introduction of stricter controls in relation to the Coronavirus/Covid-19 pandemic, we have had to make changes to the way we are delivering our planning service.
These measures are interim and will be updated as and when the situation changes. Please keep an eye on our planning services page and follow @ourlivepark for future updates.
As a Planning Authority, we are responsible for deciding all planning applications in the National Park area. We deal with over 300 applications a year, including householder developments, proposals for housing and tourism, listed building alterations and advertisements. Our Planning Service Charter sets out our service commitment to you and service standards that we promise to work to and our Planning Performance Framework sets out how we perform.
Our Local Development Plan and its supplementary guidance provides a framework for new development and sets out the planning policies which will be used to determine planning applications in the National Park.
