Cumbria County Council's 'yourDistrict' guide to council services magazine survey
Cumbria County Council has recently redesigned its residents magazine to be more locally based and tailored to the six separate districts in Cumbria: Allerdale, Barrow, Carlisle, Copeland, Eden and South Lakeland.
This replaces ‘YourCumbria’ magazine which was regularly sent out to residents over the last nine years.
Whilst the response to Your Cumbria was positive, we were keen to act on some of the requests for a more factual and more locally targeted publication.
We recognise that many residents now have access to the county council’s online information. However, for many Cumbrian residents, receiving details in print remains the preferred way to receive information.
Making the change to a more local distribution means that we can customise the events and useful phone numbers as well as focussing on the grants and local decisions being made in each area. The new smaller envelope format also makes it easier to include other useful information from the county council and our partners.
