Close ​​​​​​​Waste collections

We are currently experiencing issues with our bin collections which means we have not been able to make it to some properties on the scheduled day. We apologise to everyone affected by this. To help alleviate the issue whilst a long-term solution is devised, we are suspending garden waste and glass, cans and plastic collections for up to two months from 8 July 2019. More details.


The Allerdale Local Plan (Part 1) - Strategic and Development Management Policies

The Local Plan (Part 1) forms a key element of the development plan for the area of Allerdale outside the Lake District National Park. It sets out the strategic and development management policies that will guide development up to 2029. It also includes alterations to the Proposal Map.  Allerdale Local Plan (Part 1) replaces most of the policies in the Allerdale Local Plan 1999. 

The plan was drawn up after extensive consultation and evidence gathering.
