Our planning policies are the starting point for considering all planning applications in the National Park. When making a decision on a planning application, we must consider:
> The local plan (COR and DMD policies)
> Other ‘material considerations’
Background evidence and research support policies of the local plan.
Our Frequently Asked Questions answers some common questions you may have about planning policy, how it is used and the role of the forward planning team.
Local Plan Review
The local plan must be kept up to date. We are currently reviewing our local plan and are encouraging everyone to get involved in this process.
