COMMUNITY EMERGENCY PLANNING - OPEN MEETING
The Town Council is starting preparations for a community emergency plan for the town. This has been prompted by the flooding that occurs in parts of the town but the plan can be broader than that to consider other possible causes of an emergency. ACTion with Communites in Cumbria will be attending to offer advice on plan preparation. The meeting is open to anyone that is interested in having an input into the plan - please come along to the Local Links on Tuesday 16th January 6.45pm - 8.15pm.

Eden District Council's response to the representations received during the Main Modifications consultation that took place between 10 July and 21 August are contained in the Proposed Main Modifications Consultation Statement - November 2017 (PDF: 148 pages / 5.7Mb).
These are available in the Eden Local Plan examination library.
What happens next?
Following the consultation, all representations that relate to the Proposed Further Main Modifications and/or Sustainability Appraisal, will be passed on to the Planning Inspector for his consideration.
It is anticipated that the Inspector will finalise his report in early 2018. This would allow the Council to consider his report and, subject to his recommendations, move towards legally adopting the Local Plan in early Spring 2018.
