Your Guide to the Structure Plan

Carlisle

The Cumbria and Lake District Joint Structure Plan has been replaced by the Regional Spatial Strategy under the new Development Plan system introduced by the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.   Within the Regional Spatial Strategy 23 out of 58 polices from the Cumbria and Lake District Joint Structure Plan have been extended but not replaced.   This means that these polices are still material of for planning decision making purposes.

The Regional Spatial Strategy (RSS) for the North West was adopted on 30 September 2008.   The Regional Spatial Strategy (RSS) is the statutory development plan from which all the District Local Development Frameworks coming forward will have to comply. The publication of the RSS is the culmination of over 4 years work by the North West Regional Assembly (NWRA now known as 4NW) and Government Office for the North West (GONW), involving ongoing consultation with Cumbria County Council, Cumbria's district councils and sub-regional partners. 

On adoption of the Regional Spatial Strategy (RSS) 23 of 58 policies from the Cumbria and Lake District Joint Structure Plan have been extended and not replaced. For more information please follow the link below.
