Parish Council meeting

The next Parish Council meeting & AGM is due to be held on 20 May 2021 at 7.30pm. This is expected to be a traditional meeting at the Community Hall.

Do you want to help out with your parish?

As a result of the current elections Lowick parish council now has just three nominated councillors and welcomes interest from parish residents to join us to better support this locality. We are currently looking to co-opt two suitably motivated individuals to join us at our bi-monthly meetings.

And if you don’t feel that being a councillor is for you but have a specific subject interest (e.g. the environment) that you could help us with then we would also very much welcome a conversation.

Please consider speaking to us without obligation but in the first instance register your interest with an email to the Parish Clerk.

Unlawful use of off-road motorbikes

The Parish Council is continuing to receive multiple reports of a large increase in the number of motorbikes riding unlawfully on footpaths and across designated land particularly in the area between Great Burney and Beacon Tarn and now on Lowick Common. Riders have also been observed riding on the highway illegally.

A great deal of damage is being done to the landscape and there are reports of walkers being intimidated. We still strongly encourage residents to report these events to the Police – the more reports received the more time will be devoted to curtailing this destructive activity.

How to report non-emergency crime.
