The Maryport Town Council (Flimby) Community Governance Review
Our original web page that predated this Allerdale Borough Council consultation contains lots of information about the warding arrangements for Maryport Town Council. It can be accessed HERE.
Allerdale Borough Council received a valid petition from local government electors in the Flimby Ward of Maryport Town Council seeking a Community Governance Review with the view to establishing a separate parish council for Flimby.
The written request is:
We the undersigned residents of Flimby want community representation and to have the opportunity to influence decisions within our ward and to have local input with the running of the area in which we live and to implement our own independent Parish Council.
Residents and stakeholders of Flimby and Maryport can contribute to this review by engaging with public consultations.
The first consultation will run from 7 November 2022 to 24 December 2022, following this consultation draft recommendations are published for further consultation.
Allerdale Borough Council will then make final recommendations to the new Shadow Cumberland Council which will make the final decision.
If Cumberland Council make the decision to proceed with the creation of the Flimby Parish Council, Elections to the Council will be held in May 2024.
