1 Land allocations proposed in the Central & South East Distinctive

Area

1.1 The purpose of this section of the consultation document is to set out the

physical extent of the Central & South East Distinctive Area, and to identify

where allocations for development, as well as designations for open

space, are proposed.

1.2 Where there are locally distinct approaches to allocating land which reflect

the Distinctive Area policies within the adopted Lake District National Park

Core Strategy, these are identified and explained.

1.3 A summary of how much land is proposed for allocation in each settlement

in the Central & South East Distinctive Area is provided.

1.4 Maps of each settlement are provided so the preferred sites can be easily

identified. Detailed assessments for every site are available on our

website at www.lakedistrict.gov.uk/allocations. Alternatively copies of

specific site assessments can be sent by email or post on request. Please

call 01539 724555.

1.5 Site assessments relating to land which is now excluded from the

allocations process are also available on our website.

1.6 It is essential that this section is read alongside the main covering report

for this consultation, as this explains in detail how decisions have been

taken over where land should be allocated, and how much land is needed

for allocation. It also gives details of the previous and next stages in

allocating land.

Where is the Central & South East Distinctive Area?

1.7 The following map shows the extent of the Central & South East

Distinctive Area, and it identifies the Rural Service Centres and Villages in

the area, which are also listed in the Core Strategy.

1.8 The following table lists each settlement in the West Distinctive Area. It

sets out whether allocations for development are proposed in each

settlement, and if so, how much land has been shortlisted.

1.9 In addition, there are a range of amenity and recreation open spaces

throughout the Central & South East Distinctive Area which are proposed

for designation.

1.10 Our planning policies in the Core Strategy enable us to look to allocate

sites for affordable housing in those villages where there is a

proportionately high need. We have produced a technical report (at

www.lakedistrict.gov.uk/allocations) which identifies which villages have a

proportionately high need for affordable housing.

1.11 Proposals will still be supported in all villages for local needs housing, as

well as local affordable needs housing where there is evidence of need,

regardless of whether the site is allocated, as long as the proposal is

consistent with the policies within the Core Strategy.

1.12 The Central and South East Distinctive Area policy (CS07) in the Core

Strategy states that we would seek to allocate employment sites primarily

in Windermere/Bowness and Staveley.

1.13 In addition, despite being a Village rather than a Rural Service Centre, the

same policy has enabled us to identify an employment site in Troutbeck

Bridge as a preferred option.

1.14 We are also proposing to allocate land at Kendal Fell Quarry (page 16) for

a waste management and treatment facility. This is to assist South

Lakeland District Council with the redevelopment of the Canal Head area

of Kendal, which requires the relocation of the household waste recycling

centre.

1.15 Core Strategy policy CS31 states we will seek to allocate Kendal Fell

Quarry for a waste management and treatment facility. Whilst there may

be scope for other types of development at Kendal Fell Quarry in addition,

no consideration has been given to the suitability of the site to

accommodate other development. Any other plans for the site would need

to be assessed through the planning application process.
