Community Governance Reviews

Community Governance reviews provide the opportunity to review and make changes to community  governance within a specified area. 

Town and Parish councils and residents of the community (via petition) can request a review of their governance to be carried out by Allerdale Borough Council. A review could look at the boundaries, the number of councillors, the creation of a parish council and whether a council should merge with another.

The reviews are usually carried out by a working group of Allerdale councillors for the relevant area. The group comes up with a recommendation and this is voted on by Allerdale Borough Councillors, the final decision is then made by Cumberland Council.

Cumberland Council

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.
