The Government is asking for views on a proposed new restriction that would require people to get planning consent in order to use a property as a short-term holiday let.

We will be examining the proposals and responding to this consultation before the deadline of 7th June. We support the proposal in principle, but careful consideration will need to be given to the detail of how the proposal is to be applied, to ensure it is appropriate for Cumbria and the Lake District.  You can find out more about the consultation here:
