Creating sustainable communities
Every community has community buildings, like parish rooms, village halls and schools. We would seek to invest, and support and encourage investment, in community buildings to ensure that they are fit for purpose and sustainable long into the future.
Our new community support officers would provide support to parish and town councils and community organisations, to enable them to access funding, plan for the future and to ensure that they reach their full potential.
Contributing to a greener Allerdale
Working with partner organisations, we will encourage small-scale renewable energy installations for all community buildings - like Solar PV and renewable heat sources - that can help combat fuel poverty while creating additional income streams and reducing our carbon footprint.
