The Parish Plan – September 2021 Update

After distributing by hand a copy of the Parish Plan questionnaire to all residential properties within the Parish we received 35 returns by either online submission or a printed hard copy. We then had to input the hard copy responses by hand, matching the format of online submissions, to obtain a consistent and accurate document derived from the total of all responses.

One of our Councillors has put together a summary of our thoughts and conclusions of your responses and we would very much like to share this with you here.

Additionally and to provide transparency about what we are trying to achieve we also would like to share with you a summary of all responses with identity information removed.

Please take a look at both documents and let us know your thoughts through the Parish Clerk.

We are now thinking of how we can construct the Parish Plan itself. We would very much welcome any parishioner(s) with an interest in joining in to help.

Reporting potholes

You can report a pothole on the highway to Cumbria County Council with the reporting tool on the council website or via FixMyStreet.

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.
