In November 2017 the County Council adopted its updated Cumbria Development Design Guide.  The updated Cumbria Development Design Guide will now take into account recent national standards and include guidance in relation to Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) as well as detailed guidance in relation to highways, rather than having two separate guidance documents.  The update has ensured that Council's policy is in line with national guidance.
