This page provides residents with an easy and straightforward means of bringing to the attention of the Parish Council any matters relating to the infrastructure and facilities of the parish and to the safety, security and wellbeing of residents and visitors. This may include such things as vehicle parking, nuisance, vandalism, street-lighting, footpaths, verges, potholes, pruning, drains etc. .
The Highways Hotline.
If you have a concern about something on the highways network, a pot-hole, flooding, a blocked drain etc., then call the Highways Hotline num-ber, 0845 609 6609, and report it.
Having rung the above number you will be asked to choose a district, for Allerdale press 1 and then a locally based operator will ask what you wish to report. You will be asked where the pot-hole (or whatever the concern is) and try to be as accurate as possible, for example: outside the entrance to Dale Farm on the B5233 or use a post code or map reference. You will also be asked for your name, post code and telephone number.
Recent experience has been good with concerns being dealt with within a week so please don’t hesitate to use the Highways Hotline number:
0300 303 2992 or visit www.cumbria.gov.uk/highwayshotline
Alternatively please contact the Parish Clerk via firstname.lastname@example.org
Your post will be discussed at the next meeting of the Parish Council. The council’s decisions/actions may be seen in the council minutes available on parish notice boards and on the Parish Council page of this website.
