Can you help?

Once again we find our ‘La’al’ Show without a Secretary.

We are seeking someone to work alongside our dedicated committee to continue to provide the fabulous Show that we all know and love.

Road Safety Working Group

Blawith and Subberthwaite Parish Council and Lowick Parish Council have formed a group of residents and council members to discuss many issues relating to the A5084 from Lowick Bridge to Torver Bridge.

There are many accidents, near misses, and erratic speeding situations. Sections of the footpaths have been allowed to deteriorate to the point they are unusable for much of their length thus creating potentially dangerous situations for walkers and residents who are forced to walk in the road.

Your experiences, suggestions and support will be invaluable in supporting the parish councils in their negotiations. Please email your concerns to the parish clerk Christine Adams.

Reporting potholes

You can report a problem on the highway to Cumbria County Council via the:

A590 Cross-a-Moor junction improvement scheme

Latest updates and planned diversions in June.

Discounted compost bins

A595 Grizebeck improvement

Cumbria County Council has submitted a planning application for the preliminary design of the Grizebeck improvement scheme.

The Grizebeck improvement scheme is a 1.4km single carriageway road between Chapels and Grizebeck on the A595, north of Barrow. The route runs to the east of the existing A595, passing properties at Dove Bank and Dove Ford before crossing the existing A595 and creating a new junction with the A595/A5092 to the west of the existing junction.

A decision on the planning application is expected in the summer, with construction starting in 2024.
