Can you help us improve our community environment?

Having two "new" bus shelters would be a great way to get 2021 underway and a real, visible landmark that our community is bouncing back after a tough twelve months for all of us. Please help us if you can.

The condition of the bus shelters at The Hill and The Green were identified as areas for improvement in the Community Plan. It's clear that they don't reflect the generally very high standard of the built environment in the Parish so we want to undertake repairs to both.
The council had a generous offer from HMP Haverigg to carry out the repairs during 2020, however, the covid crisis has meant that this work has not been able to commence. While we would still like our agreement with HMP Haverigg to come to fruition, it seems unlikely that this will be the case in the foreseeable future so the council have decided to take the realistic view that we must readvertise the work within our community and search for a local individual or company who would like to help us get this project underway.
A specification for the works has been produced and can be downloaded from the bottom of this page. Expressions of interest can be made to the Clerk as can requests for further details, using the contact information on this website and the specification document. If you'd like to be part of improving our Parish please get in touch. (NOTE: the specification has been revised 08/02/21, if you have an older version of the specification please replace it with the revised version)
