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.
We can get stormy weather which can bring high winds. This can affect power lines, damage buildings and cause dangerous conditions on our coastline.
Some key organisations to follow are:
Our building control department is responsible for dealing with dangerous buildings. If a building has been damaged and there is a risk to life, contact the police on 999 and report it us immediately.
Electricity power lines
Electricity is the responsibility of Electricity North West. Follow them on Twitter to find the latest update on power cuts or on their website, and if you suffer a power cut you can contact them by ringing 105.
Our coast line can be affected by windy weather. If you see someone in danger, call the coastguard on 999 immediately.
Coastal roads are often closed, or damaged, during storms. You can find out more on the Cumbria County Council website.
The Environment Agency can provide more advice on the dangers of coastal flooding and any current risks.
