Planning Potential - The Vendors have approached Allerdale Borough Council in late 2015 regarding further residential development of the property. According to the planning officer who dealt with the enquiry, Sarah Smith, Little Bampton is identified as an infill rounding off village under Policy S3 of the Allerdale Local Plan and therefore Allerdale Borough Council would only be looking for one or two new dwellings within the village as a whole. Little Bampton has little in the way of services to support any major developments. Sarah Smith continues In terms of a replacement dwelling this may be acceptable in principal given the dwelling is located within the settlement limits. Allerdale Borough Council would need further details as to any new dwelling to comment fully on the proposal. A copy of the full letter from Allerdale Borough Council can be viewed by prior appointment only, at the offices of the Sole Agents.
