Consultation on plan for Beacon Hill

January 11, 2022 9:37 PM

Time limited - Consultation closes on 4th of February!

Neighbourhood Plan Examination

7 January 2022: The examination of the Penrith Neighbourhood Development Plan is now almost completed. However, in advance of the independent Examiner issuing his report, he has requested that an additional period of public consultation take place in respect of a new policy he is proposing for Beacon Hill.

For the reasons set out in the Examiner's Consultation Note, below, he has decided there should be a new bespoke policy for the woodland area which the local community value. As this is a new policy, and not a modification of the proposed policy concerning Beacon Hill, it has not yet been the subject of public consultation, either at Regulation 14 or Regulation 16 stage. The Examiner is therefore inviting representations on the bespoke policy and has asked Eden District Council to conduct a public consultation, on the wording of this policy, on his behalf.

Public Consultation

Everyone (including residents, landowners and businesses) has four weeks from Friday 7 January to 11.59pm on Friday 4 February 2022 to make representations on the proposed policy for Beacon Hill being put forward by the Examiner. We will pass any representations on to the Examiner for his consideration, as part of the examination process, and will makes these available on our website. Copies of the Examiner's Consultation Note, incorporating the new, proposed policy for Beacon Hill, is available to view at link
