The Village Services Survey assesses the level of service prevision in all the settlements outside the 4 Main Towns in Copeland
The Copeland Local Plan provides the framework for sustainable development in the borough. A key part of this is to ensure that development takes place in locations which provide the best access to essential local services and employment opportunities. These ‘Local Service Centres’ might be a single large village or a group of villages. New development should be focused in or near the borough’s towns or to these centres.
This survey establishes the level of services and employment opportunities available in each of the borough’s settlements outside the 4 main towns and will therefore inform the settlement hierarchy and development strategy for the Copeland Local Plan.
