Cumbria’s Strategic Recovery Coordination Group (SRCG) has launched an online public consultation to gather feedback on the Draft Recovery Strategy for Cumbria.
The SRCG is a partnership of organisations and authorities including the county council, district councils, Cumbria Police, NHS, Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership, Cumbria Council for Voluntary Service, Cumbria Community Foundation, Lake District National Park, Yorkshire Dales National Park, and others.
Planning for the future is essential to a successful recovery for local residents, businesses, communities and tourists. To ensure there is a robust recovery framework in place, Cumbria SRCG has developed a draft recovery strategy document, and is now seeking the views of local people to help inform the final version, which will be published in the Summer.
It is important to gather as many views as possible to ensure the strategy reflects what is needed for Cumbria’s residents and businesses, and that a wide range of feedback can be considered.
The strategy has been developed by an extensive range of partners across Cumbria, and further information about the SRCG, as well as links to the draft recovery strategy document, and the online survey, can be found at www.cumbriarecovery.org
To have your say complete the survey online here. The closing date for feedback is 25 April 2021.
A temporary Road closure has been put in place to allow Cumbria Highways to carry out footway resurfacing which are expected to commence 26th April 2021 and anticipated to take 5 weeks to complete.
Please see below details of the extents of the closure and alternative route, the relevant legal notice can be viewed at https://api-gb.one.network/downloads/tm/1026/notice_0f39458fde.pdf and a location plan clearly showing these extents can be found on one.network via link https://one.network/?tm=120997395
Location: U4466 Dale View Gardens & Dale View Close for its entire length.
Alternative Route: There are no suitable alternative routes available for vehicles. A way for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists will be maintained at all times.
Should you require any further information relating to this temporary order please do not hesitate to contact me.
