About the council changes

Your new Westmorland and Furness Council and the services we deliver.

Westmorland and Furness Council is a unitary council. We have replaced:

  • Barrow Borough Council

  • South Lakeland District Council

We deliver a range of services including:

  • Collecting bins and recycling
  • Planning
  • Council Tax and benefits
  • Maintaining roads, pavements and footpaths
  • Schools and social care

We cover an area that stretches from Alston in our far north east, to Walney Island in our far South West. It includes the towns of Barrow, Kendal and Penrith.
