Appleby Joins the Planning Revolution


Following six weeks consultation, Eden District Council has approved the designation of the Appleby as a neighbourhood area. 


This formal designation enables Appleby in Westmorland Town Council to carry out its own development planning with the support of the local community. They can produce a Neighbourhood Plan that determines how development will be allowed to take place in their areas, and they can grant planning permission through Neighbourhood Development Orders.
