  5. Infrastructure Deficit Report

    The Local Development Framework is underpinned by work on the Borough’s infrastructure. By “infrastructure” we mean the basic facilities, services, and installations needed to make Copeland work as a place to live, do business or visit. It falls into three broad categories: physical, such as roads and railways, drainage and energy supply systems - what many people would define as infrastructure; community infrastructure – schools, libraries, community centres, leisure, sports, cultural, health and police facilities; green infrastructure – parks and public open space, and also anything that contributes to or maintains biodiversity. 

    Development may increase pressure on aspects of infrastructure which are deficient or at capacity. Where this is the case, planning obligations can be imposed to make sure that developers contribute to work which mitigates the impact of the development. This might include, for example, improvements to road junctions to reduce traffic congestion, or the provision or improvement of open space and sports facilities.

  21. Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment

    Copeland Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA)

    The Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) is a key part of the evidence base to support the Core Strategy.

    The Copeland SHLAA serves two primary purposes. These are:

    • To support the Core Strategy by demonstrating how the housing requirement identified in the Core Strategy could be delivered;
    • To provide the starting point for identifying housing sites when the Council produces the Site Allocations DPD.

    It should be noted that the SHLAA is not an allocations document and does not allocate sites.

    Also, the SHLAA does not in any way prejudice decisions to be taken by the Council in relation to the Site Allocations DPD or the determinations of planning applications.
