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.
