The subject of the decision


The Head of Place Development submitted a report which sought members to consider and approve the Maryport Delivery Plan.


As part of the Allerdale Economic Growth Plan which set out a range of interventions to enhance the livability of Allerdale’s local centres, Maryport had been identified as a priority area for action. A delivery plan had therefore been developed to help guide future regeneration for Maryport, to enable the town to fulfil its role as a key residential, employment and visitor centre.


The Executive considered it an excellent Plan, one which was achievable, highlighted ideas and opportunities and the potential for the town to create its own identity, with the support of the Town and Borough Council. It recognised the importance of the involvement of the local community people and groups but also the need for strong and continuous commitment and leadership from the Borough Council to ensure its successes.


Councillor C McCarron-Holmes moved the recommendations within the report; this was seconded by Councillor B Cannon. The recommendations were unanimously agreed.
