The Our Place programme aims to give communities the opportunity to take control and tackle local issues.
National funding of £4.3m is available for those applying to proceed as a pilot.
Our Place promotes three key benefits:
1. Stronger and more powerful communities able to make decisions on the things that affect them
2. Delivery of better locally designed services
3. More efficient use of resources where spend is 'stretched'
Key agencies will need to be committed to the process, particularly us, Cumbria County Council, the police and the NHS.
