Planning panel

The role of the Planning Panel is to determine applications for planning permission and consultation on planning applications or Crown proposals which include applications for the development or change of use of premises and matters relating to historic buildings. They are also responsible for the enforcement of all legislation relating to planning control, other than those delegated for determination to the Head of Nuclear, Energy and Planning. This includes applications made by the council itself.

We do not deal with county matters, the Lake District National Park Authority and nationally significant infrastructure projects.
