Planning decisions for Hesket Parish are taken by Eden District Council. The Parish Council is made aware of all applications within our Parish, and passes comments back to the District Council. However, following recent changes to Eden District Council’s Planning Code of Conduct, only those comments concerning Material Planning Considerations will be taken into account before decisions are reached. For a detailed list of Material Planning Considerations, please follow this link – Material Planning Considerations.
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. For a copy of the plan please follow this link – Eden Local Plan. Policy maps can be accessed here – Eden Local Plan Policy Maps. Following the 2019 local election, the new Eden District Council administration have committed to reviewing the Local Plan by 2023 as part of their approved Council Plan, details of which can be found on their website here – Eden Council Plan.
