Penrith Town Council are starting an 8 week consultation on the Neighbourhood Development Plan. When completed, the plan must be used by Eden District Council when making planning decisions.
Cllr. Peter Baker, Chair of the Neighbourhood Development Plan Group explains: “The important comments and contributions people in the town have already given us have helped shape the current Neighbourhood Plan. Our consultation process will be live from 4th February to 1st April, 2019, and we want people to get involved and voice their opinions on the important proposals and planning policies identified.”
All residents and businesses in Penrith will be sent a summary document, questionnaire and pre-paid envelope for responses. The questionnaire will also be available for completion online.
The Town Council will also be holding drop-in sessions at various times and locations in the town, including, the Town Council Offices in Friargate, Penrith Library, Sainsburys, Morrisons, and the Gathering.
In-depth information about the Plan and the different ways to get involved will be available on the Neighbourhood Plan section of the Council website, and will also be included in the Council’s social media platform. In addition, updates and information will be released to the local press, tv and radio.
