Beaumont Parish Plan - Calling on ALL residents of Beaumont Parish  Many apologies to those parishioners who have tried to complete the Parish Plan Questionnaire online.

Cumbria Local Nature Partnership daytime talks. You can now register for the CLNP lunchtime talks using https://my.demio.com/ref/ThgbntV8Wlp2Ujh8 Once you have registered, you will then be sent a link to join the talks and reminders for the individual weekly talks which we take place every week until Christmas. The theme of the talks is ‘Nature Recovery’ and we hope that each of the talks will both inform you little more about what we need to consider in our design and delivery of a Nature Recovery Network, and at the same time hopefully inspire and enthuse everyone to get involved. The talks will be around 20-30 mins long followed by questions.  We hope people can grab themselves a drink and some lunch and then enjoy listening/participating. Any problems please contact me and we can see if we can sort them!

 Local government re-organisation

 Local government change is being discussed in the County. This is about working with government to change the current County and District Councils into a single Council. Different geographies for Unitary Councils are being discussed, as you will have seen in the newspapers.

 ACT is keen to take this opportunity to discuss rural specific needs and we want you to help us with that. 

 Over the past three years we have been running surveys where you have been telling us on the street, at events and village shows and online, about the issues you think are important for rural living. We have used this information to inform this short (10 question) survey exploring how you think services could best be delivered in rural areas and across the whole of Cumbria in any restructure.

 ACT will use the anonymous results of this survey to inform and advocate on rural needs with all parties in the local government re-organisation debate.

 The survey closes at 12 noon on the 1st December. We will publish the results of the survey on our website www.cumbriaaction.org.uk as soon as we can after that. We hope all Cumbrian Councils will use the results to inform their local government re-organisation discussions. 

The District Councils of Allerdale, Carlisle, Copeland and Eden have made a funding contribution to this work. This does not mean ACT has a view, or favours, any proposals or bids from these authorities.

ACT does not have a stance on any of the geographies on offer. Our previous stance on local government re-organisation has been :

ACT can see benefits for Cumbrian residents in having one authority to work with rather than the current two tier system. We would welcome an enhanced role for Parish and Town Councils. Please complete this survey using the link, which will close at 12 noon on Tuesday 1st December  https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/P66JQ6D
