Food & Farming Local Development Order


Eden District Council has been awarded funding by the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) to set up one of 17 government-backed Food Enterprise Zones across England. The Food Enterprise Zones will use a planning tool called a Local Development Order to introduce new permitted development rights to streamline the planning process in these areas and support growth for businesses.


Eden District Council proposes to make a Local Development Order granting planning permission for the erection of buildings and/or the use of land as part of a Food and Farming Enterprise Zone in accordance with a specified design code on the following sites in Eden:


  • Cross Croft Industrial Estate, Appleby
  • Gilwilly Industrial Estate Extension, Penrith
  • Kirkby Stephen Business Park
  • Newton Rigg Campus, Penrith
  • Skirsgill (land to the south of the A66), Penrith
  • Skelgillside Workshops, Alston
  • The Old Creamery Industrial Estate, Appleby

It is necessary for the Council to consult with those it believes may be affected by this proposal and to ask for any comments they may have.


A copy of the draft order and a statement of the Council’s reasons for making the order are available for inspection the Council’s Offices at Mansion House, Friargate, Penrith, CA11 7YG, and Town Hall, Corney Square, Penrith CA11 7QF.
