Change of Parish Name

Proposed Parish Name Change

Background

For many years there has been confusion regarding the name of our Parish being Allithwaite Upper, this has been main due to the similarity in name as Lower Allithwaite Parish, however as we have no geographical connection to “Allithwaite”   it seems appropriate to consider a name change that represented the geographical location and identity of the parish more clearly. Following a consultation as part of the Community Plan review 78% of respondents felt this was important and supported the proposed name to “Lindale and Newton in Cartmel Parish”

The Parish Council now intends to seek consent from SLDC to proceed with the statutory process of changing the parish name.
