Highways

Public Highways in the Parish are the responsibility of Cumbria County Council, who is our highways authority.  The Parish Council recognises that there are often problems with our roads such as potholes and flooding and works with the Highways Authority and our County Councillor to try to tackle issues as they arise.  But it is important that you, as residents, also get involved with the process by reporting problems when you see them (see below for details of how).
