Planning Applications

The Parish Council meet every two months during which responses to Planning Applications are considered. The Parish Council does not have executive powers to accept or reject applications, but our views are considered when the application is determined by the relevant authority. We also contribute views on Local Area and Regional Strategies on subjects such as housing, transport, environment and employment.

How does it work?

Copies of applications are received by the Chairman from the Planning Office.
The Chairman calls the Planning Working Group together to discuss the planning applications received. The comments agreed by the Working Group are then given to the Clerk to pass to the Planning Office. At the next parish council meeting a schedule of the planning comments submitted between parish Council meetings is presented to the Parish Council for ratification.

Kingmoor Parish Council Comment
1. The Council feels that it needs a new planning application to inform the general public of the changes from a gasification plant to an incineration plant and to give the public the right to respond.
2. The transport assessment is for bulk tipper carrying 28 tons at a time. This plant could take household waste i.e. bin wagons, these do not carry 28 tons. So does it need a new transport assessment?
3. Is an incineration plant the kind of development that is going to attract new industry to the prime development land alongside Carlisle City Bypass? Or should an alternative site be found? One such site is Hespin Wood.

Kingmoor Parish Council Comment
It is envisaged that the application will result in an increased amount of HGV traffic on the Kingmoor Park House Road the council would like to see this road improved to take the additional HGV traffic; the council would also like to see street lights installed on this section of the road and a reduction in speed from 40 miles an hour to 30 miles an hour; in addition the council believe that there is an issue with safety for pedestrians using the bridge and would like to see the footpath altered to improve the safety for pedestrians.
