Media and publicity protocols

We all must communicate effectively and with clarity. Publicity describing the council’s policies, aims and activities will be as objective as possible, concentrating on facts or explanation or both. Any comment will be objective, balanced, informative and accurate and in compliance with the Recommended code of practice for local authority publicity .

Publicity during the pre-election period - Purdah

During the six-week pre-election period, particular care will be taken to ensure that laws surrounding local government publicity are not breached. This is often known as purdah and the council complies with  the Local Government Association's guidelines.

On 1 April 2023 local government in Cumbria changed, with Cumberland Council providing all your council services.  

Don't worry though, your bins will be emptied as normal, and you'll still be able to speak to the same team about any enquiries to do with things like council tax, benefits, planning or any other service.

Find out more about the changes.

Keep up to date by finding and following the new council on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
