Lake District National Park Design Code

03 March 2023

One of the key priorities for the Lake District National Park Design Code is ensuring nature-based solutions, such as sustainable drainage systems, are included in future developments to protect natural ecosystems and combat climate change.

We are currently engaging with the community to establish a vision for the Lake District to ensure the design code is based on what is popular locally. A draft design code will be available for consultation in Spring 2023, and we expect to adopt the code as a Supplementary Planning Document in September 2023.


Have your say on the design code by visiting the Design Code webpage and visit the online hub to tell us what design features you like.
