Where to go for more information
The planning system not only has an important role to play in preventing inappropriate development from harming the special qualities of the AONB but also has a role in facilitating appropriate and sustainable forms of development.
The Arnside & Silverdale AONB Executive Committee is a non-statutory consultee on planning matters. The responsibility for planning policy and decision-making rests with the two local planning authorities – South Lakeland District Council and Lancaster City Council
So for help and advice on planning matters, please visit the relevant local planning authority website or the Government’s Planning Portal for general information about all aspects of planning.
