Devolution Proposals for Cumbria

Councils in Cumbria have submitted proposals for the reorganisation of local government in their area by creating a single tier of local government. The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government are seeking views on these proposals to help the Secretary of State form a judgement on which, if any, proposal best meets the criteria for implementing these reforms. The consultation period runs until 19th April 2021. The consultation is open to parish and town councils, community groups, interested bodies and members of the public.
The restructuring of Local Government will have an effect on everyone's daily life as most of the services we receive are administered by Local Government, in the case of our Parish, this is Copeland Borough Council at present but is likely to be replaced by a new unitary authority with a bigger geographical coverage, bigger population and greater powers than the current situation.
The links connect to the UK Government website with more details of the consultation and the consultation document. The four individual proposals are already available on other pages in this section of the MWPC website.
