Planning decisions for Hesket Parish are taken by Eden District Council. However, the Parish Council is made aware of all applications within our Parish, and any comments we pass on to the Planning Officer will be taken into consideration before decisions are reached.
Eden District Council officially adopted the Eden Local Plan 2014 – 2032 on October 11th, 2018. The Eden Local Plan sets planning policies for the District against which planning applications will be assessed as well as allocating land for various uses, including housing developments across the District and setting out a strategic vision for growth. A full copy of the plan can be accessed here. Policy maps can be accessed here.
As the planning authority, Eden District Council has a duty to investigate reported breaches of planning regulation. Details of their Local Enforcement Plan can be found here. If you wish to report a possible breach of planning control, this can be done online using the form found here, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing to Planning Services, Eden District Council, Mansion House, Friargate, Penrith, CA11 7YG.
