THE CURRENT PARISH PLAN        2013-2020

The current Parish Plan was completed in 2013 and can be viewed here. It reflected the priorities identified by the Parish Council after extensive consultation across the community. These were grouped under the five themes:

• Environment

• Public Transport

• Highways

• Village Facilities

• Housing and Development

Since 2013, much has been achieved in delivering the Plan’s objectives. Examples include our determination to retain open spaces within the village, support for ‘Gowan Stop and Go’, improvements to the village centre (now known as ‘Jack’s Corner’), the introduction of restrictions on the Ayland Recreation Area and the provision of local train and bus timetables. Other priorities have proved more challenging and have taken longer or have not been achieved. These include improved access to the station, repositioning of the recycling site, the introduction of 20 mph limits and better use of the former cricket field. A full review of the Plan can be found here.

In part, successful delivery is due to the need to work with partner authorities who are responsible for specific areas but who may have competing priorities. Maintaining and developing strong partnerships and working successfully together will remain a key requirement in the delivery of the new Community Plan. Our major partners include

• The Lake District National Park

• Cumbria County Council, including Cumbria Highways

• South Lakeland District Council

• The Environment Agency

• United Utilities

• National and Regional Transport Companies

Others, such as SENS, the Lakes Line Community Rail Partnership and local groups, organisations and businesses represent our local partners with whom it will also be important to engage.

The review of the current plan will help to provide a useful baseline for the next Community Plan. Each of the remaining tasks will be checked against the more recent extensive consultation outcomes to determine whether they should be taken forward and in what way.
