Garden waste collections

The council and our waste collection partners Allerdale Waste Services would like to apologise for the issues which have affected some properties' garden waste collections over the last couple of weeks. The issues have been caused by self-isolation and other staff absences. 

The advice for households who've not had their collection this week is to take bins back in and present them on their next scheduled garden waste collection day.

Households are advised to continue checking our website and social media accounts for the latest information on collections.

Statement of Community Involvement (SCI)

One of the key objectives of the new planning system is effective community involvement. Allerdale Borough Council considers it important that communities feel that they are part of the planning process and that their aspirations are considered and taken into account.

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) document sets out the council’s policy for engaging the community and stakeholders in the development of planning policy through the replacement Local Plan.

The council's SCI sets out:

  • What the minimum requirements for public participation are
  • Who we will be trying to involve
  • How we will be involving them
  • How we will monitor the process.

The SCI was adopted on the 3 March 2010.
