  1. Planning


7/2019/3096, Cherry Holme, The Square, Glenridding, Penrith, CA11 0PF, Alterations and extensions to east elevation; including alterations to entrance hallway, first floor extension and alterations to the roof



7/2019/3092, Glenedge, Glenridding, Penrith, CA11 0PG, Proposed single storey front extension




7/2019/3103, Striding Edge Hostel & Swirrel Camping Barn, Greenside Road, Glenridding, CA11 0QS,

Conversion of traditional stone buildings, currently used as a hostel and camping bothy,

into 3 cottages for short-term holiday letting.

REFUSAL on the grounds that we do not support this application. The barn was meant for underprivileged children have access to the outdoors, NOT more holiday cottages. There are already a VERY high number of holiday cottages in the parish and not a need for any more. The need for local houses are a greater need for the parish. 

We sincerely hope that the LDNP will not support this as it will set a very poor precedent of change of use. We’d rather see it turned into local occupancy homes.





7/2019/3084, Patterdale Hall, Glenridding, Penrith, CA11 0PT, Reinstatement of stone gate post damaged by impact




7/2019/3111/12, Wordsworth Cottage, Patterdale, Penrith, CA11 0NP, Erection of garden room, replacement-repair of existing windows to match and fenestration redecoration



7/2019/3104, Application to modify S106 Agreement on planning approval reference 7/1993/3072, STYAN BEW, HARTSOP, PENRITH, CA11 0NZ

REFUSAL on the grounds that it will set a new precedent and people will not respect ‘local occupancy clause’ The owners new this before they purchased the house’

Clerk questioned LDNP as to why  ‘Modify S-106’ doesn’t require Parish feedback. Awaiting response from LDNP






  1. 7/2019/3085, Land at Greenside Road, Glenridding, CA11 0QG, Outline permission for residential development

No Objection,

Approval with reason that Patterdale Parish Council presumes that this will be a local occupancy residential development and we wholeheartedly support this.




  1. 7/2019/3066, Glenwood, Glenridding, Penrith, Cumbria, CA11 0PG

Retrospective application for land forming works to facilitate car parking area
