As expected The Parish Council is pleased that the 5/6 lodges application at Starnthwaite look like they will be refused. I chased up the decisions regarding this and the lodges at the Crosthwaite Corn Mill and attach the reply below. It is good to see that the new Lake District Local Plan published in May 2021 has been applied as it should have been.
"I anticipate that we will be issuing a refusal for the lodges at Starnthwaite under delegated powers in the coming days. I have reviewed the Crosthwaite Cornmill application and I have reservations about the likely impacts. I am not clear whether this will be a delegated or committee decision at present.“ (to the Parish Council Chair from D. McGowan LDNPA)

The Housing Needs survey outcome forms a major part of evidence-gathering for a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) for Crosthwaite & Lyth Parish. The results will be fed into a larger document looking at a range of aspects of the Parish: housing; natural environment; community facilities, sustainability and local businesses. The document then goes through further refinement cycles through community consultation, and discussion with the Lake District National Park. Finally, there is a community referendum on the refined version.
Crosthwaite and Lyth have officially started laying fibre piping. This has been an unprecedented schedule for B4RN, as no other project has gone from conception to turf cut in such a short time. We ask all those in the valley, who have yet to sign up to B4RN to do so please. As for those that have, the many landowners who signed the free wayleaves and the core volunteers we extended a massive THANK YOU. Soon we will have hyperfast reasonably priced internet ensuring that this valley is ready for the future.

Clerk to Crosthwaite & Lyth Parish Council.
Note - the PC meetings are now generally held on the 1st Tuesday in each month.
Parish Council E-mail
The Parish Council has agreed that the use of electronic communication with Parishioners may be far more effective than current notice boards etc. and has subsequently agreed to establish a database (GDPR compliant) of Parishioner email addresses via which it can communicate with Parishioners. However, the challenge is in obtaining the email addresses of parishioners.
The agreed email address collection process is via an “opt in” system whereby those already enrolled can forward the Parish Council updates to people who we feel would be interested. The recipients can then "opt in" by contacting the Clerk to the PC at the following address requesting that they also wish to receive a Parish Council update.
