North Copeland Coast

North West

The North Copeland area is geographically remote, bound by the high fells of the Lake District National Park to the east and the Irish Sea and Solway Firth to the west. North Copeland is made up of several small and medium-sized settlements including Whitehaven, Parton, Lowca and St Bees along the coastline, and Distington, Egremont and Cleator Moor in close proximity to the coast.

The coastal communities of North Copeland exist in a challenging environment where economic growth is being driven by huge corporations working closely with local and central government. The creation of the North Copeland Coastal Communities Team (NCCCT) provides a means for coastal communities to work together to develop their own local solutions to the key economic challenges facing North Copeland, but to do so in a way that connects those communities through improvements in infrastructure, communications and information.

The range of organisations currently involved are locality partnerships, parish councils and environmental groups.

The CCT will put in place a structure to ensure continued and sustainable partnership working, to monitor the implementation and delivery of projects in the Economic Plan.
