We are currently carrying out the annual canvass of electors to update the electoral register. Please note that your canvass form may state that you or other people in your house are over 76. We gather this information for jury service purposes and our system defaults to this category if we do not hold a date of birth for an elector. If this information is incorrect please make the necessary amendments on the paper form and send it back to us in the envelope provided.
Local Code of Corporate Governance
Each Local Authority operates through a governance framework. It is an interrelated system that brings together an underlying set of legislative requirements, governance principles and management processes.
This framework has been recently revised due to the continual evolvement of the role of local authorities and builds on recent governance work both in the public and private sector.
The six core principles from the Good Governance Standard have been adapted for the local Government context and incorporated into the Local Code of Corporate Governance, which sets out the means by which the council intends to manage its governance arrangements.Download Allerdale Borough Council's Local Code of Corporate Governance
