A report on the findings was published along with the resulting Action Plan as the Lower Allithwaite Community Plan. This was adopted as policy by the Parish Council in July 2013.

Results updated 1 Feb 2017

The Community Plan which was drawn up largely on the basis of this consultation exercise was approved as policy by Lower Allithwaite Parish Council in July 2013. The Plan includes a detailed account of the survey outcomes together with an Action Plan. The full text can be downloaded from the Allithwaite village website, where other Parish Council papers are also available.



Yes, another questionnaire – but this one’s important! Our Community Plan needs to reflect the views of local people accurately.

Community Plans are being developed in parishes all round the country so local people can have a real say in the future of their area. This questionnaire has been put together by the Community Plan Group, which includes members from the Parish Council and wider community.

It is the outcome of more than a year’s work gathering a range of views about living in this area. Using this information the questionnaire has been developed to cover a variety of topics affecting the lives of people in Allithwaite and Cartmel.  Topics covered include attractiveness of villages, housing, local countryside, visitors, business and employment.

The findings from this survey will be used to create the Lower Allithwaite Community Plan, identifying the community priorities. An action plan, setting out how and when these are to be addressed, will be presented at public meetings later in the year.

This questionnaire is inevitably quite long and takes around half an hour to complete. If you prefer, only do the sections you feel are relevant to you.  It would be really helpful to us if you completed the survey online, using the link below. We hope you agree your participation will certainly be worthwhile and thank you for your help.

What happens next

The findings from this survey will be presented at public meetings later in the year, which will start the process of drawing up the plan itself and the action plan which sets out targets and how they will be achieved
