Cumberland Council

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

On day one, most things won't change - 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.

Keep up to date by finding and following the new council on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Sign-up to receive updates straight to your email inbox.
