Cumberland Community Panels

There are eight Community Panels covering Cumberland. Each is made up of the ward councillors for that area. The panels meet four times a year to decide what their communities need, and to direct investment towards projects that tackle those priorities.

They are helped in that process by Community Networks. These are made up of residents, businesses, partners and third sector organisations. They engage with residents through events, consultations and other methods to find out exactly what investment is needed in each neighbourhood. That is then fed back to the Community Panels to inform their spending.

Each of the Community Panels has a webpage where you can find out which councillors are on the panel, which wards it covers, and other information.

Lowca comes within the Whitehaven and Coastal Community Panel area.
