The full business case for the Carlisle City and Eden District Councils proposal for a two unitary model for the local government reorganisation of Cumbria. This proposes a North/South split of the county with each unitary managing more local services and an over-arching Combined Authority managing the county-wide services. This proposal would join Copeland with South Lakeland District and Barrow Borough Councils in the South with the Northern Unitary being made up of Eden, Carlisle and Allerdale.

There is a HM Government consultation presently underway but which ends on 19th April. If you wish to have your say, please use the link below and follow the instructions. MWPC have made a submission to local government reorganisation which you can read in the Document Library section of our website
