  4. Planning Contributions SPD

    The Council has analysed Copeland’s infrastructure and is determining the priorities for improving it. (Infrastructure includes not only the physical infrastructure - such as transport, energy and water supply, drainage – but also social and environmental assets - such as sports facilities, community halls and open space). This SPD will set out those priorities as a basis for negotiating planning contributions from developers, so that new development helps to meet the impacts which it has on the Borough. The SPD will also inform negotiations with the developers of the proposed nuclear power station to secure the investment needed to make sure that benefits to the community of nuclear new build are optimised. The Council may decide to adopt a Community Infrastructure Levy, which would be a tariff potentially on all development. The SPD cannot do this and any proposal for a levy would be in a separate document subject to separate consultation and independent public examination.

  8. West Whitehaven SPD

    Work has started on the preparation of a new Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for the area of coastal fringe between the Candlestick Chimney in the north and Birkhams Quarry to the south. The SPD will encompass the former chemicals works on the “Marchon / Rhodia” site, Haig Mining Museum and part of the St Bees SSSI along the coastal strip. The Cumbrian Coastal Path runs approximately north / south through the area, linking Whitehaven Harbour to the North West’s only section of Heritage Coast at St Bees Head.      

    West Whitehaven has a complex and extensive history of mining, quarrying and industrial activity which has left a legacy of ground contamination, mine shafts and scars in the landscape, as well as a number of buildings and structures of historical and archaeological interest. The area also supports a variety of interesting and nationally significant wildlife.

    The SPD will set out planning guidelines for West Whitehaven’s future protection and enhancement, and will identify possible areas where carefully designed, small scale development which meets local needs, may be acceptable.

  21. Site Allocations and Policies Plan

    The Site Allocations and Policies Plan will demonstrate how the adopted Core Strategy, and crucially the policies which outline the borough’s ambitious targets for growth and development, will be delivered on the ground, as well as identifying areas to be protected from development.  Together with the adopted Core Strategy and Development Management Policies it will provide the basis for determining planning applications.

    The Local Plan should allocate enough land to meet the borough’s predicted needs over the plan period (2013-2028) which is identified in the adopted Core Strategy.  The Site Allocations and Policies Plan will achieve this with a suite of site specific policies followed by the proposed options for land allocations.  Once adopted, they will replace the remaining allocations that have been saved from the Copeland Local Plan 2001-2016.
